Retail site in heart of east Belfast on market with £1.85m price tag

By John Mulgrew

A major retail site in the heart of east Belfast's thriving Ballyhackamore area has gone on sale for £1.85m.

The property on the Upper Newtownards Road is being sold off jointly by commercial property agents Lambert Smith Hampton and TDK.

The three-storey building is currently home to Thai restaurant Camile, ice-cream shop Cafe Mauds and Mortgage First.

It also includes four newly-completed duplex apartments.

Those selling the property say "the units occupy a highly prominent position on the Upper Newtownards Road and benefit from high volumes of both passing vehicular and pedestrian flow".

Meanwhile, a 100-year-old property in south Belfast is on sale for £1.125m, amid the planned relocation of Action Cancer.

Lisney has been appointed to sell or let Action Cancer House in south Belfast.

The property, located at Marlborough Park, has come to the market due to the planned relocation of the Action Cancer charity to new offices in spring next year.

Built in 1917, it has been home to Action Cancer since 1975, for use as the charity's breast screening clinic, therapeutic support centre and headquarters.

Andrew Gawley, associate director at Lisney, said: "The building is suitable for a wide range of uses, including as offices, clinic, day care facility and nursery, subject to the necessary consents being awarded."

Elsewhere, Invest NI is selling off one of its properties outside Belfast following a review of its estate. It has appointed Lisney to sell the 1.5-acre site at Mayfield Link in Mallusk.

A spokeswoman for Invest NI said: "Following a review of its property holdings, Invest NI declared a stand-alone 1.5-acre area of land at Mayfield Link to be surplus to its requirements.

"The Department of Finance, through Land and Property Services, is bringing this land to the open market on behalf of Invest NI in order to achieve best value for the public purse."
