One of Belfast’s most iconic buildings has found a new lease of life as The Flatiron, offering unrivalled high-specification office space in the heart of the city centre. The five-storey building on Victoria Street, home to the popular Bittles Bar has been re-developed incorporating office space. We have significantly revitalised this important building, maximising its unique layout to create a contemporary design fit for the future, utilising the high ceilings and exposing brickwork for a modern interior finish.
As one of the world’s first ‘Flat Iron’ shaped buildings, the historical 1860s warehouse was perched on the river bank in Victorian Belfast. As the town grew around the building, into the bustling city it is today, the location has endured as the centre of commerce in the city.
The Flatiron offers three floors of high-grade office accommodation, each providing more than 1,600 sq ft of space.
The historic building has been finished to an exceptionally high standard including the installation of engineered hardwood flooring and feature radiators while a restored staircase from the entrance lobby is complemented by a new five-person lift offering access to all floors.
Bittles Bar itself, which was founded in 1868 and originally called the Shakespeare due to its theatrical clientele, remains on the ground floor of The Flatiron.
