Is this the death of Moore Street?

is this the death of moore street?

the machines are rolling in
buildings are being torn down
new ones are going up
will it bring more life to the street?
the street is the heart of dublin
its story is dublins story is irelands story

the last few years has seen new colours, new tastes, new languages, new sounds, styles.
as well as all that was there before.
should it stay like this, growing in its own natural livley way
or do we want more big windows telling us what we should buy?
