Fanum House, Belfast
Fanum House, Gt Victoria Street, Belfast was completed in the mid-60’s and, at the time, was, at eleven storeys, the second tallest building in Belfast. I remember reading that the architect had designed it in this colour because it would not show the, inevitable, marks of pollution caused by burning coal in most industrial, commercial and domestic premises. There have been several proposals for the redevelopment of the site which had the following planning permission (18 September 2012) “Z/2011/1178/F Erection of 15 storey, 173 bedroom hotel with basement, including car parking. (Amended Plans) 110 Great Victoria Street Belfast BT2 7BE”.
Hotel site, Dublin Road, Belfast

The Planning Service website shows that, on 11 April 2012, planning permission was given for the construction of a 146 bedroom hotel at 35-39 Dublin Road (Z/2011/0891/F) (at the corner of Harmony Street).
