The building has now closed and is offered for sale. The agents’ brochure includes this description: “The property comprises the former Shaftesbury Square Hospital and two three storey former dwellings all of which are interconnected on a site of approximately 0.25 acres. The former hospital building has been relatively well maintained whilst the adjoining properties require extensive modernisation/refurbishment works. 116 Great Victoria Street is a Grade B Listed build (No. HB25/30/072) and listed building consent will be required prior to any proposed changes”. This photograph appears as a matter of record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the sale.
Shaftesbury Square Hospital, Belfast

Built in 1867, to a design by WJ Barre, as the Ophthalmic Hospital, Gt Victoria Street, and extended, in the same style, in 1928 (the different brick is still discernible in the bay to the south). Charlie Brett noted “it has no hint of the pomposity usual in public buildings of the period”.
