The original entrance to the “Telegraph” office (corner of Library Street (left) and Royal Avenue) was replaced after the extension J3374 : "Tele" extension site, Belfast was built. The building was completed in 1886 to a design by Henry Seaver.
Nos 124-144 Royal Avenue, Belfast (Belfast Telegraph)

The “Belfast Telegraph” currently (August 2015) occupies two buildings, in Royal Avenue, between Library Street and Donegall Street. The older of the two, at the corner of Library Street, was completed in 1886 to a design by Henry Seaver. The second is a 1980’s extension, at the corner of Donegall Street.
The former is now listed – see LinkExternal link.
The following is the official announcement “Dublin/London 21 August, 2015: Independent News & Media PLC (INM ID, INM LN) today announced the planned closure of its printing operation in Belfast. INM also confirmed that it remains committed to its Belfast publishing business which will continue as normal. The print closure, which is expected to be implemented by no later than June 2016, is expected to entail a reduction of up to 89 employees, and reflects the industry wide trend of reducing print volumes as consumption of news via digital channels increases, together with the ending of a key contract with a UK publisher in Belfast.”
The paper reported that it would move to offices elsewhere in Belfast.
Note added 27 May 2018. “Belfast City Council and established local developer McAleer & Rushe have formed a Joint Venture Partnership to acquire the former Belfast Telegraph building and develop the site in an area of the City which is already undergoing major transformation” - quotation from “The Sixth” website.
