Nos 96-98 High Street, Belfast

Built in 1935 as a furniture shop and later converted to the Ulster Sports Club, 96-98 Hight Street is now (February 2019) vacant. There is the following application (25 January 2019) for planning permission “LA04/2019/0199/F Extension to the Merchant Hotel into adjacent building no 96-98 High Street (Ulster Sports Club)- change of use from registered social club to hotel. 96-98 High Street Belfast”. If approved this would be the Merchant Hotel’s second expansion into adjoining property J3474 : Demolition site, Belfast.
I have no connection with the hotel or the application and cannot enter into correspondence.
