Manet Property Developments has been given the green light to develop a new restaurant and office space at 7-9 Wellington Place in Belfast.
As reported by The Irish News, Manet Propoerty Developments has received planning permission to refurbish the listed building at 7-9 Wellington Place, which is one of three original buildings on the street that are over two centuries old, and develop a restaurant/café on its ground floor as well as office and break-out space on the three floors above.
Manet's plans primarily focus on the currently vacant 9 Wellington Place, but also include a rear extension to 7 Wellington Place, which currently houses interior design consultancy Atelier Design and an Oasis gaming outlet.
