Transport House seen from beside the Salvation Army hostel in Victoria Street (Dunbar Link on the Google map). The “Nambarrie” site LinkExternal link is on the right. To the best of my knowledge there are no (public) plans for an alternative use or occupant for the building.
Transport House, Belfast

An office building, at the corner of High Street and Victoria Street, completed in 1959 to a design by JJ Brennan for the Transport and General Workers Union. A good example of the style of the time (with a comradely feel) but now vacant and boarded up. The decorative tiles recall the days when Belfast had a solid base of manufacturing industry. Not on the official “at risk” register but on mine.
