Mark Royal House redevelopment, Belfast

A mid-60’s office building at the Royal Avenue end of Donegall Street, to which the following planning permission (19 December 2013) applies “Z/2013/0686/F Mark Royal House 70-74 Donegall Street Belfast BT1 2GU Change of use from offices to student living accommodation [sic] (halls of residence) comprising 45 single bedrooms with ensuite [sic], communal kitchen/living/dining facilities and external terrace with cycle parking”. The photographs submitted by me appear of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the development.

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”.
