When I first photographed the Upper Crescent, near Queen's University Campus, many of the buildings were in such poor condition that they appeared to be derelict.

Not long ago business partners Anthony Kieran and Cecil Hetherington of Aurient Ltd investment company purchased five buildings, two of which have now been renovated at a cost of £3m.

One of the finest examples of Regency-style planning in Belfast, in the late 1800s Upper and Lower Crescent were home to Belfast city’s professionals who had moved to the South as town centre premises were being turned into retail outlets. Residents were attracted by the elegant three storey dwellings and close proximity to the bustling Queen’s College, which opened its doors in 1849.
