Bedford Street office base among several city centre buildings put on market

A large Belfast city centre office building has gone on sale for £2m.

The Bedford Street property sits beside the JD Wetherspoon pub and Pizza Express.

It's been sold off by commercial property firm Colliers. The building covers a total of 13,300 sq ft, and is currently home to some short-term lets.

The building is located across from BBC Northern Ireland's headquarters, as well as sitting close to Invest NI, Deloitte and EY.

The development, which is made up of two red-brick office buildings, includes a 40-space car park at the rear. The spaces are leased on licence agreements at a total rent of £43,800 each year.

Meanwhile, two other city centre office developments are being sold off at auction, with a combined guide price of £5.5m.

Lesley Exchange is made up of two buildings which are being auctioned separately.

The first property is a five storey, single-let office building, of steel frame construction. It's currently fully let out to the Department of Finance, on a 10-year lease, which began in 2014.

It's due to be auctioned off by Osborne King at the Clayton Hotel in Belfast, on June 23, with a maximum reserve of £3.15m.

Meanwhile, Lesley Exchange 2, also on East Bridge Street, is a four-storey office building which is being sold at the same auction for £2.3m.

The building covers 25,000 sq ft of space and also includes 16 car park spaces. It receives annual rent of around £85,000 each year.

The auction will also see Duncrue Industrial Estate in Belfast going on sale.

The development is going to auction with a maximum reserve of £800,000, and includes 11 separate business units.

Elsewhere, the former home of Belfast golf store Nevada Bob is currently up for rent.

The store, located on the Boucher Road, closed its doors earlier this year.

Now, Frazer Kidd is trying to let the empty building, which covers 4,700 sq ft.

It sits close to a number of businesses, such as Screwfix, and adjacent to the Boucher Retail Park, which includes American Golf, Next and Boots.
