New lease of life for famous city building

By Staff Reporter

The building housing Bittles Bar in Belfast has been rebranded The Flatiron after renovations turning it into high-end office space.

The five-storey building on Victoria Street has been redeveloped by Holywood investor Wirefox, which bought it in 2016.

Michael Wright, director of asset management at Wirefox, said: "We have significantly revitalised this important building, maximising its unique layout to create a contemporary design fit for the future, utilising the high ceilings and exposing brickwork for a modern interior finish."

Savills acted for Wirefox in the purchase of the building, which originated as a warehouse in the 1860s, and is now a letting agent for the development. Bittles, originally called The Shakespeare, will remain on the ground floor.
