Heritage campaigners challenge demolition

Belfast, Ireland
Carlise Property Developments want to transform the 19th Century warehouse on Queen Street in Belfast city center and turn it into a nine-storey apartment complex with shops.

This plan has been greatly opposed by a number of heritage campaigners. Campaigners have consequently won High Court permission to challenge the demolition. A judge ruled tearing down the 19th Century warehouse should be based on more than just economic reasons because it is in a conservation area.
