The new unattended petrol station under construction, behind the hoardings, at the corner of Gt Victoria Street and Ventry Street, on what was to be the site of the “Aurora” development. This photograph appears as a matter of record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved. Fanum House is in the background.
The "Aurora" site, Great Victoria Street, Belfast

A site, at the corner of Great Victoria Street and Ventry Street. Once the site of Henry Martin’s builder’s yard J3474 : Old harbour bollard, Donegall Quay, Belfast which was replaced by the Belfast Ice and Cold Stores. In more recent times, after the demolition of the Stores, it was a Shell petrol station. The proposed 37-storey mixed-use building was refused planning permission. The site remained vacant following the insolvency of the developer. There is now planning permission for an unattended petrol station.

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”.
