Nos 81-107 York Street, Belfast :: J3375

A site with the following planning permission “Z/2015/0118/F Demolition of retail unit and construction of 11 storey mixed use development comprising 50 No. apartments, ground floor retail and parking, first floor retail and basement parking [AMENDED PLANS RECEIVED] 37-41 Little Patrick Street Belfast BT15 1BA”.

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”.
