Swanston Hall site, Belfast :: Shared Description

No 29 Wellington Place is a late-Victorian building perhaps best known as “Parsons & Parsons”. It shares a rear boundary with nos 41-49 Queen Street – a building in more recent times occupied by “The Athletic Stores” but originally built, in 1911, as a linen warehouse. The proposed demolition and redevelopment of the latter has proved to be a matter of some considerable controversy. The current (September 2015) proposal is to redevelop both as “managed student accommodation”.
The site is currently the subject of the following application for planning permission (26 October 2015) “LA04/2015/1252/F Erection of purpose built managed student accommodation comprising 114 studios and 203 cluster rooms (317 units in total), retail unit (class A1) on ground floor of Queen Street, common room, management suite on ground floor of Wellington Place, reception, laundry room, cycle store, plant room and bin storage area. Retention of existing facades of 41-49 Queen Street, 24 College Street and 29 Wellington Place and demolition of buildings behind. The proposed building is 5 storeys behind Wellington Place façade, 7 storeys behind Queen Street façade with a setback floor at level 8 and 13 storey tower setback from the Queen Street frontage. (Amended Plans) 41-49 Queen Street 24-30 College Street and 29 Wellington Place Belfast”.
The photographs submitted by me appear as a matter of neutral historical record only. I have no connection with the developers, objectors or any campaigners. I am not a member of the UAHS. I have no views about the development – for or against and will not enter into any correspondence on the subject.
