NEW OBEL APARTMENTS LAUNCHED
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.
