Landmark charity headquarters on Malone Road on market for more than £1m

The south Belfast headquarters of Action Cancer has been put on the market for £1.125m

A LANDMARK building in one of the most expensive areas of Belfast has gone on the market for £1.125 million.

Action Cancer House, at Marlborough Park off the city's Malone Road, was built a century ago and has been home to the charity since 1975.

The three-storey building has been used as the charity's headquarters, breast screening clinic and therapeutic support centre.

But it is now being sold after Action Cancer bought the Irish Football Association's former Windsor Avenue headquarters in south Belfast for £1m last year.

The building will be redeveloped as the charity's new headquarters and treatment centre and will be opened next year.

Property agency Lisney is handling the sale of the Marlborough Park property and spokesman Andrew Gawley said it is "in one of the most sought-after areas of Belfast".

"The building is suitable for a wide range of uses - including as offices, clinic, day care facility and nursery - subject to the necessary consents being awarded," he said.

Gareth Kirk, chief executive of Action Cancer, said the building had been "a tremendous asset to the charity".

"Our move to new headquarters in 2018 will, however, mark the start of an exciting new chapter for Action Cancer, allowing the charity to meet an ever-increasing demand for our cancer services and programmes," he said.
