Nos 28-30 Gt Patrick Street, Belfast - May 2017(1)
Three lift shafts rising well above Gt Patrick Street. When complete the building will have a significant visual impact and (I hope) help to remove the isolated feeling of the area immediately north of the very wide Dunbar Link. The main structure is under construction at bottom left.

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”.
