Award winning architect Hugh Wallace, founding partner of Douglas Wallace Consultants, spoke to Damien Tiernan about new plans for Waterford's North Quays site which his company are involved in.
Hugh, who is presenter of 'The Great House Revival' and a judge on 'Home of the Year', explained that the retail space for Phase 1 of the development looks likely to be a tenth of what was originally planned.
It had originally been envisaged that the retail space would amount to 30,000 square metres but that has been pared back to between 2 and 3,000.
Speaking on 'Déise Today', Mr Wallace said there will be no major shopping complex.
