Commonwealth House redevelopment, Belfast

Commonwealth House, Castle Street, formerly occupied by various Government offices, seems to have been built in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s. It has been vacant for some time and is now the subject of the following applications for planning permission: “0527/LBC Lands bound by Royal Avenue , Castle Street , Bank Street and Bank Square including Primark at Bank Buildings and former Commonwealth House at 29-43 Castle Street , Belfast Refurbishment of existing retail premises (Bank Buildings) and extension to include the redevelopment (demolition and new build extension) of adjacent building including all associated site infrastructure works” and “0530/F Lands bound by Royal Avenue , Castle Street , Bank Street and Bank Square including Primark at Bank Buildings and former Commonwealth House at 29-43 Castle Street. Refurbishment of existing retail premises and extension to include the redevelopment (demolition and new build extension) of adjacent building including all associated site infrastructure works”.
The photographs submitted by me appear as a neutral matter of geographical and historical record. They do not express any opinion, for or against, the applications. I have no connection with any of the parties involved in the proposed redevelopment.
