Coffee chain Starbucks is set to open up a new shop at a recently refurbished city centre building, it has emerged.

It’s taking on a 2,500 sq ft unit at Moneda House at Wellington Place in Belfast.

Moneda House has been redeveloped by Tyrone based developer, McAleer & Rushe, and also includes 17,000 sq ft of office space on the upper floors.

The project is part of a £5m investment.

“Moneda House is an exciting development which has received significant market interest to date,” Jonny McKinney of McAleer & Rushe said.

“The property is in an exceptional location within a two-minute walk to Belfast City Hall providing cutting edge contemporary retail and very high quality office accommodation in Belfast city centre, which is currently in short supply.

“This significant investment in the building is fantastic news for the wider growth of Belfast as a vigorous forward-thinking international city. It gives confidence to many new and existing world-leading companies that Belfast can cater for their office requirements.”

Osborne King delivered the letting to Starbucks. Associate director, Richard McCaig, said:

“We are delighted to be marketing such a high profile scheme for McAleer & Rushe. The company has a proven track record of creating world- class buildings both in Northern Ireland and across the UK.”

“We have already had significant interest from a range of office occupiers. There is no doubt that the quality of the scheme and its prime location close to Donegall Square will be attractive to both local and national businesses.”
