Former "French Connection", Cornmarket, Belfast - January 2014
See J3374 : Closing-down sale, Belfast (2) (February 2012). Another long-tern vacant shop, the former “French Connection” at the corner of Cornmarket (foreground – Arthur Street on the Google map) and Ann Street – now with a “sold” sign. The selling agents’ website records “Acting on behalf of the Vendors, McConnell Chartered Surveyors has completed the sale of a prime retail property on Cornmarket in Belfast City Centre. Formerly leased to French Connection, the building occupies one of the best trading locations in Belfast, situated on the highly visible Cornmarket / Ann Street corner, benefitting from a particularly high pedestrian footfall to and from Victoria Square. The property was agreed in an off-market deal to a private local investor who was represented in the acquisition by Campbell Cairns. Rory McConnell, Agency Director at McConnells, said “This sale demonstrates a continuing resurgence of interest in prime locations. Confidence is returning and we are at last beginning to see some increased liquidity in the commercial property market””.
This photograph appears as a matter of geographical and historical record only. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the sale or subsequent purchase. J3374 : Nos 26-28 Cornmarket, Belfast (March 2014) shows the building under renovation.
