The management company of a luxury apartment complex has been forced to withdraw its objection to developer Johnny Ronan’s “Salesforce Tower” after a backlash from apartment owners and residents. The management company had strongly objected to the plan to add two floors to the docklands development, saying it “made a mockery of the planning process”. However, once the objection became public, several apartment owners wrote to both the management company and DCC expressing support for the development, prompting the climbdown from the management company. Salesforce, the company which has agreed a deal for all the office space once the block is constructed, lodged an observation in support of the project’s expansion. “The site characteristics lends itself to increased heights and densities providing for high-quality additional accommodation in a location well served by public transport and within the Docklands area,” the company wrote.
