Magnet House, Belfast
Magnet House, Belfast
Magnet House, at the corner of York Street (left) and what remains of Gt Patrick Street, beside the Dunbar Link. For many years synonymous with the Department of Agriculture and now occupied by various Government offices. Its address is 81-99 York Street. When built (later re-clad) it replaced a number of small buildings which, at one time, were home to several traders as diverse as The Irish Shroud and Frilling Co (87A) and a temperance hotel (99).
Royal Avenue and York Street, Belfast - possible changes

A University of Ulster press release dated 7 March 2013, commenting on the proposed new Belfast campus at York Street LinkExternal link contained the following: “This will mean around 14,000 students and 1,500 staff will occupy the building over the course of a week . . . . . The University has been working with partners in government on a Community Business Opportunities Plan which will capture these benefits for the advantage of the surrounding communities”.
The appearance of Royal Avenue and York Street and the types of businesses accommodated there (and surrounding streets) seems likely to change in line with developments as the University becomes established.
This is a collection of photographs of the area “for the record”.
