The five-storey listed building on Royal Avenue is one of very few art deco buildings remaining in Belfast. Located on Royal Avenue it has remained vacant since the Bank of Ireland relocated their headquarters to Donegall Square South in 2005.

In 2012 the building was headline news when the “Take Back The City” element of the Occupy Belfast protest began squatting there.

Late last year [2021] Belfast City Council purchased the building to home a new £100 million tourist project. The building will be restored and turned into Belfast Stories, visitor experience which will tell the stories of Belfast, the people and the place. The Belfast Stories development is one of seven tourism and regeneration projects included in the Belfast Region City Deal (BRCD). Due to open in 2028, elements of the new visitor attraction will be housed in the building and the surrounding 4,000 sq m site.
