A three storey building designed by Blackwood & Jury in 1918 for the Ulster Bank. The bank relocated to a new building at the nearby Connswater Retail Park early 1998.
The building was refurbished and leased to Ferris, Craig & Moore (FCM Partnership) between March 1998 – March 2013.
The property was offered for sale during 2013 with a guide price of £250,000. The building sold in October 2013.
The Orange Order’s offices relocated to the building between December 2013 – June 2015 whilst refurbishment works were carried out at Schomberg House, Cregagh Road.
The building was B2 listed in April 2016 (ref: HB26/10/007).
Empire Holdings (UK) Ltd submitted a planning application (LA04/2021/0502/F) in February 2021 proposing to convert the upper floors of the former Ulster Bank building into 7no. apartments (5no. one bed & 2no. two bed).
