A LIM­ITED num­ber of high-end apart­ments in Ire­land’s tallest build­ing, The Obel, have just gone on sale af­ter ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment work on the iconic sky scraper.

A lead­ing lo­cal in­te­rior de­signer was con­sulted to help turn the apart­ments into sleek de­signer homes ca­pa­ble of im­press­ing the most dis­cern­ing owner/oc­cu­piers and in­vestors.

Boast­ing slick, so­phis­ti­cated in­te­ri­ors which ex­ude lux­ury and char­ac­ter, the Obel res­i­dence is be­ing mar­keted as a show­case of mod­ern con­ve­nience and style.

Tow­er­ing 85 me­tres above the city, the Obel is fa­mous as Ire­land’s tallest build­ing.

When it was built in 2005 at a cost of £60m it trans­formed the city’s sky­line and ex­em­pli­fied Belfast’s re­nais­sance.

Its lo­ca­tion close to the vi­brant Cathe­dral Quar­ter and award-win­ning restau­rants makes it an ideal home for young pro­fes­sion­als.

Com­pleted in 2011 with 27 floors the build­ing boasts many unique ben­e­fits, not least the in­cred­i­ble views of Belfast City and the Lough from all of its apart­ments.

Ear­lier this year lead­ing com­mer­cial prop­erty agent Lis­ney an­nounced that the build­ing was to re­ceive a £2m in­vest­ment.

Since then sig­nif­i­cant re­fur­bish­ment work has been car­ried out to the com­mon ar­eas through­out the build­ing where a new lobby with concierge gives the feel­ing of hav­ing stepped into a five star ho­tel.

The Obel houses over 200 lux­ury apart­ments and 52,462 sq ft of grade A of­fice ac­com­mo­da­tion, which is home to in­ter­na­tional law firm Allen & Overy and the Mount Charles-op­er­ated eater­ies, Fed and Wa­tered.

Will Mis­camp­bell, Part­ner of Fether­ston Cle­ments Es­tate Agents — the agency re­spon­si­ble for sell­ing the apart­ments — said: “We are hugely ex­cited to be in­volved with such a land­mark pro­ject.

“The Obel is a truly iconic build­ing which is now set to reach its full po­ten­tial with the ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment works fully gath­er­ing pace.

“We did an­tic­i­pate high de­mand for the apart­ments and since they were re­leased last week we have had an in­cred­i­ble amount of in­ter­est.

“Lead­ing lo­cal in­te­rior de­sign­ers and land­scape ar­chi­tects have been con­sulted on the in­ter­nal con­fig­u­ra­tion, fin­ishes and ex­ter­nal land­scap­ing to en­sure the units meet the high spec­i­fi­ca­tions, equalling that of any lux­ury apart­ment de­vel­op­ment across Europe.”

Lo­cated on Done­gall Quay, the new re­leases will in­clude one, two, and three-bed­room lux­ury apart­ments, and du­plex and pen­t­house suites.

There are three fully fur­nished show house apart­ments avail­able to view.

In­side, ev­ery de­tail has been taken care of and the apart­ments have been painted and car­peted with stylish chrome iron­mon­gery on the doors and re­cessed down lighters in the kitchen/bath­room and en suite.

As you would ex­pect the elec­tri­cal spec­i­fi­ca­tion is upto-the-minute, with wiring for broad­band and satel­lite TV, tele­phone points and a re- mote-door-en­try sys­tem that can be ac­ti­vated any­where from a mo­bile phone.

The kitchens are cus­tom de­signed with soft close doors and con­tem­po­rary units with be­spoke mod­ern work sur­faces and match­ing up stands.

The full range of ap­pli­ances are all in­te­grated and in­clude an oven, in­duc­tion hob, fridge freezer and washer dryer which in most apart­ments is housed in its own util­ity cup­board.

The bath­rooms and en suites are also mod­ern with tiled walls and floors; large wall mounted mir­rors and heated, brushed chrome, towel ra­di­a­tors with com­pli­men­tary chrome fit­tings.

The Obel comes with a lovely land­scaped pi­azza to the front of the build­ing and se­cure un­der­ground car park­ing.
