The area bounded by York Street, Corporation Street, Whitla Street and Gt George’s Street was cleared some 40 years ago for a road scheme which was never completed in the form envisaged. There is planning permission for “Erection of 10 storey building (retail showroom for the sale of bulky goods and class B1 office use) along with associated site works and car parking. (Amended Plans) Z/2008/1795/F”.

Royal Avenue and York Street, Belfast - possible changes :: J3374

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”.
