Belfast law firm offices put on the market

Marlborough House on Belfast's Victoria Street is on the market with an asking price of £3 million.

THE offices of two Belfast city centre law firms have gone on the market.

Marlborough House, the headquarters of Tughans Solicitors, has been listed with a £3 million asking price, while Diamond House on Royal Avenue, the base for Diamond Heron Solicitors, is on sale for £795,000.

The six story Marlborough House on Victoria Street lies between the Albert Clock and Malmaison Hotel.

According to the property brochure produced by CBRE, Tughans’ lease on the 25,252 sq ft office building is due to expire on November 15 2021. CBRE puts the law firm’s annual rent at £309,291.

The CBRE brochure also lists three unoccupied buildings to the rear of the office block, including a grade two listed warehouse, a small derelict apartment block and derelict offices.

The listed redbrick warehouse, which dates to the 1870s, is also known as Prince’s Court.

Meanwhile the Royal Avenue law offices of Diamond Heron have been listed as “a prime city centre refurbishment opportunity”.

It includes 6,314 sq ft of office space over four floors.

Argento owner Pete Boyle’s property company Angus Properties refurbished part of the second floor at 7-19 Royal Avenue a number of years ago.

The offices are located close to the listed Royal Chambers building on Royal Avenue, where property developer Kirk Bryson recently launched a bid to to develop apartments.
