Property: It’s showtime for the Montgomery Street masterpiece

The FX building is a luxurious development of 36 one-bedroom apartments situated on Montgomery Street in Belfast’s vibrant, beating heart, just a two-minute walk from the City Hall and a moment’s stroll from Victoria Square.

Following huge interest there’s only a few apartments left. Sales agent Simon Brien Residential provides an overview of FX and what makes it so appealing.


FX is Belfast’s first apartment building with its own exclusive residents’ lounge – a place to relax with the papers, catch up with friends over a coffee or attend to business before heading straight out into the city’s premier restaurant district.

The best Belfast has to offer is right on your doorstep. The Merchant Hotel, The Spaniard Bar, Cloth Ear, Six by Nico, Deanes, Ox, and Yügo - the list of quality venues within a five-minute stroll goes on. Chances are though, you might want to hang out at home.

There’s a rooftop terrace, a well-equipped fitness suite and a concierge.


Layout and design of the living spaces, kitchens and bathrooms have been created specifically for FX in a collaboration between architects Povall Worthington and trailblazing London interior specialists, Day True.

With studio showrooms in London’s Maida Vale, Chelsea and Wimbledon, Day True is one of the capital’s most sought after architectural interior teams.

Their reputation for exceptional kitchens and bathrooms has now been extended to Belfast, not only for their design and specification expertise, but their ability to make intelligent use of every square foot available in the one-bedroom FX apartments.

Tony Robson, one half of the husband and wife Day True partnership sums up their approach to FX: “Good design has the power to improve lives. That’s why we interpret space using ideas, not measuring tape.

“It means our suggestions and solutions for FX fit and enhance the lives of the residents, not just their apartment.

“Bigger thoughts that make every square foot earn its keep; intelligent use of light and colour; quality materials designed to look gorgeous and work beautifully for years.

“A development as pioneering and unique as FX demands that every aspect be carefully considered and curated.

“It’s been our great pleasure to be involved with the FX vision from the start. Seeing it come to life makes all the creative decision-making worthwhile.”


Day True has also brought its close relationships with some of the world’s best appliance and accessory manufacturers to bear at FX.

Hansgrohe, Jesse, Rexa, Axor and Rot Punkt are just a few of the premium brands in every apartment. Handles, doors and light switches are made by Buster + Punch, and although their smoked bronze appearance looks industrial, diamond cut knurled finishes give it luxurious appeal.

Every residence is flooded with natural light which is achieved by flowing the kitchen, living and dining spaces into each other.

Pocket doors open into wall cavities rather than into living spaces; an inbuilt hot water tap keeps kitchen surfaces appliance-free, while a top-of-the-range Siemens oven that also steam cooks and microwaves, maximises cupboard space. An induction hob boils water in half the time of a normal hob.

This is not technology for the sake of it. It makes a real difference to how you live.


Simon Brien says the vision outlined by FX is a first for the city.

“The attention to detail, quality and style of FX including the residents lounge, gym, concierge and rooftop garden is a first of its kind for a Belfast City Centre apartment development,” he said.

“Purchasers have appreciated this unique development with 28 of the apartments sold off-plan prior to the opening of the show apartments.

“The purchasers are predominantly first time buyers and people looking for a city centre base as well as investors who wish to purchase a property in the city centre due to the excellent rental demand.”

The FX show apartments are open for viewing for the first time on Sunday, October 27, 2pm-4pm.

Only a few apartments remain for sale - further proof were it needed of the exceptional home-owning opportunity FX presents and also the appetite for a higher level of luxury living in the very heart of Belfast which is fast becoming one of the world’s favourite destinations.

The apartments are priced from £165,000.
