Fountain House
Prime City Centre Retail Store
Hobart & Heron Project Managed this important city centre development, which was completion in 2007 and ready for tenant fit out. The building is located in the heart of the prime retail centre of Belfast. Hobart & Heron retained the existing listed facades, removing all 4 existing floors and roof, and putting back 3 new floors at greater floor to floor heights to suite modern retail requirements. The external building fabric was totaly refurbished back to its original appearance. The project was extremely challenging from the outset -in obtaining the initial Planning and Listed Buildings consents for the reuse of the building, through to the engineering solution to retain the facades, and construction operations on a confined city centre site. 'New Look' a major UK fashion retailer took a long lease for the entire building in Belfast City Centre.
