The former Bank of Ireland Link at the corner of Royal Avenue and North Street now has a “sold” patch on the “for sale” banner J3374 : Former Bank of Ireland, Royal Avenue, Belfast - October 2015(2). The building seems likely to be included in a private-sector proposal, called “Northside” LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) to redevelop a neglected and decaying area in the northern part of the city centre.
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 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”.
