See J3473 : Former Armagh House, Belfast (April 2009). It seems that the proposal to convert the former Government offices (and once the factory of Greeves, Ridgeway & Co., linen and damask manufacturers) into an aparthotel has been abandoned. According to the local media, the developer is quoted as saying “Unfortunately we have taken the decision to postpone any future development in Belfast at the moment. This is due to the prevailing economic situation and the current oversupply of bedrooms in Belfast.” J3473 : Former Armagh House, Belfast (October 2011) shows the building in October 2011.
