The Central Bank used to do an informal count once a quarter from the top floor on Dame St from where you can pretty much see everything.

I am not sure how conducive the new quayside offices are to this though.

This is a rise of seven – or 10 per cent – on last month’s total and two less than the 80 recorded on December 1st, 2017 – the highest score yet registered by the Irish Times Crane Count.

is it alot for 2mln+ city with booming economy?

In my new approx 1 mln sized city there is 214 active cranes at the moment. A lot of them are for residential buildings like across the street from me, but there is heavy office development as well. Here is one of the city hot spots - Wrocław Business Garden:

What is really interesting for Dublin is the fact that there are still no skyscrapers despite pressure for offices and apartments close to them. I guess someone is earning a lot of money from that fact...

Just curious, has your life improved since returning to Poland ?
Is there anything that's not as good there compared to Ireland ?

I am really missing watching sea every day.
I've liked roast from pub and variety of different takeways. I really loved that there was always good choice, even in smaller towns. Here only in city center there is good choice really.

Some people should go and work in Ireland just to see how you can slow down and not be in such a rush everywhere.. Some of them are really annoying here in Poland, especially on the roads :/

What I don't miss is weather, health service and long commutes.. In recent days here I've had up to 28C which is great, I love this, especially after winter and 10 years in Ireland before that. I am still trying to recover from being a couch potato for a very long time, but I've came back to sport.

I've bought an apartment in development and I am waiting for completion. I don't want to make same mistake like in Dublin, don't want to wait forever. Economy is booming and I am bit afraid that it might overheat. There is a lot of development which is being bought fully months prior to being finished, just like mine. A lot of estate development is much worse than is used to be few years back, too dense with little green space around. My last Irish apartment was next to golf course so it is very different.

There are ups and downs, Sometimes I am thinking about my decision, if it was right one.. Then I am reading Irish newspapers or thepin and then I know why did I leave.. or maybe: why did I stay in Dublin so long..

This is the highest score yet registered by Crane Count – nine more than the previous high of 93 on September 1st – and up 13 on last month’s total of 89. November’s count is more than triple the 31 cranes recorded on February 1st, 2016, when the newspaper’s crane survey was first launched.

I recently spoke to a Pole and a Hungarian who told me that they are each separately planning to return home after a decade or more in Ireland (Dublin).
Both have youngish kids, and their main complaint was lack of quality of life here, due to the cost of accommodation.

This could be the high water mark for cranes.
