The forlorn and boarded-up ground floor on the northern side of the building. Fanum House once housed a number of tenants including the AA and Coopers & Lybrands. RTE had its Belfast studios here too.

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”.
