Starbucks to open new £5m Belfast city centre cafe
A Global coffee giant is opening a newly refurbished city centre building in Belfast.
Starbucks is taking on the corner site at Moneda House at Wellington Place - which is a 2,500 sq ft unit - to cater for the numerous office buildings and increasing student population in the area.
Moneda House has been re-developed by Tyrone-based firm McAleer and Rushe to provide 17,000 sq ft of high-specification office accommodation on the upper floors. The total project is worth around £5m.
Jonny McKinney, of McAleer and Rushe, said: "Moneda House is an exciting development which has received significant market interest to date.
"The property is in an exceptional location within a two-minute walk to Belfast City Hall, providing cutting edge contemporary retail and very high quality office accommodation in Belfast city centre, which is currently in short supply.
Osborne King delivered the letting to Starbucks. Associate director Richard McCaig said: "We are delighted to be marketing such a high profile scheme for McAleer and Rushe."
