Armagh House linen warehouse to become offices and retail complex in £6m project

By Rachel Martin

Work is due to start on a £6m project transforming a derelict city centre linen warehouse into an office and retail complex.

Social Development Minister Lord Morrow announced Karl Asset Management had been selected to undertake the redevelopment.

A series of refurbishment projects for Armagh House have been previously proposed, only to fall through each time because of the economic downturn.

Last month, the Belfast Telegraph revealed the building would be redeveloped with office space on most of the four floors, alongside a restaurant and retail space at ground level.

The property developer selected for the project, Aran Blackbourne of Karl Asset Management, was also the force behind Ireland's tallest building, the Obel. He said the space would appeal to tech and creative firms.

The building will be renamed The Weaving Works.
