37 – 41 Little Patrick Street is currently occupied by a red brick retail / showroom building.
A planning application (Z/2007/2672/F) submitted by Dominic and Fred Keating and Gregory Architects in November 2007 proposed to develop a 15 storey building comprising 75no. apartments. This was amended in April 2009 to reduce the building to 11 storeys with 50no. apartments, ground and first floor retail and ground and basement parking. The application was approved in February 2010.
In February 2015 a further application (Z/2015/0118/F) was submitted by Dominic and Fred Keating and Like Architects. The proposal seeks to develop an 11 storey building comprising 50no. apartments (with pedestrian access from Nelson Street) over ground and first floor retail units (482m2) and 40 parking spaces at basement, ground and first floor level (accessed from Little Patrick Street).
The application was approved by Belfast City Council’s Planning Committee on 17th May 2016, subject to conditions.
