Norman Foster to design U2 Tower

The planned U2 Tower, which will be Ireland's tallest building but about a quarter of the height of some of the world's tallest skyscrapers, is part of a plan to regenerate the city's docklands area.

A U2 recording studio will be suspended at the top of the tower in an egg-shaped pod.

The development will also include a public viewing platform at 100 metres, a hotel, retail and residential accommodation including affordable housing.
