Sold: Nambarrie Tea Factory in Belfast

In our post earlier this week (Where Your Nambarrie Tea Used to be Made) you saw a picture of the Nambarrie Tea factory in Belfast.  This plant was closed several  years ago and the factory was listed for sale for several years.

Then, in 2011, the factory was sold to Village Homes (NI) Ltd.  Initial plans were to build 150 apartments on the site, located in downtown Belfast.  Recently, these plans changed.  Now, Village Homes (NI) is will build 1-bedroom apartments. A further part of the proposal is to tear down the old Nambarrie tea warehouse on Waring Street and build 56 apartments.
