The former Belfast Tech
With the opening of the Belfast Metropolitan College J3574 : The Belfast Metropolitan College (1) the “Tech” J3374 : Belfast Tech (7) is now advertised “for sale”. The agents’ website describes it as “The subject is one of Belfast's most iconic buildings, the Belfast Metropolitan College which has recentlty become vacant following the College's move to a new campus at the Titanic Quarter. The building occupies a high profile location on College Square East in Belfast City Centre at its junction with Wellington Place and College Square North. The subject is a freestanding 5 storey B+ Listed Building comprising a gross internal area of approximately 15,000 sq m (161,000 sq ft).
The building has previously had planning approvals granted for a range of commercial and residential uses including hotel, office and apartments. These applications are currently in the process of being renewed”. This photograph appears as a matter of record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the sale.
