PHOTOGRAPHED IN MARCH 2022
Visiting Belfast in March was not my best idea ever because the amount of sunlight was way too limited
Every time I am in Belfast I visit the Zen Restaurant on Adelaide Street.
When I last visited in March 2022 A scheme to revitalise Adelaide Street to make Belfast a more “accessible and liveable” city had been substantially completed. The pilot project was funded by Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon’s Blue/Green Infrastructure Fund and was delivered in partnership with Belfast City Council.
The changes to the street involve seating and planting distributed along almost the full length of the west side of Adelaide Street. Lantern structures at a height of 6.8 metres were located outside Margarita Plaza, Zen restaurant and the Linen Loft and street furniture was placed on the newly extended part of the pavement.
The Linen Loft, a six-storey, red brick warehouse was formally known as the Ireland Brothers Building and was constructed in 1905. The building has been completely refurbished and redeveloped into the Linen Loft.
