Heritage campaigners may launch a legal bid to stop a developer from demolishing an Edwardian building in Belfast city centre and replacing it with a nine storey apartment block.
The former warehouse was constructed in 1911 and stands at the corner of Queen Street and College Street.
It is located within Belfast City Centre Conservation Area, but a planning application to tear it down was passed in June this year with only one objection lodged.
The developer, Carlisle Property Developments Ltd, wants to transform the site into a tower block which will include 69 new apartments, street level shops and an underground car park.
The Ulster Architectural Heritage Society (UAHS) wants a judicial review of the decision and hopes to hear back from the Department of Environment on the issue within days.
