2010 – Obel Tower, Belfast, Co. Antrim
The Obel Tower dominates the Belfast skyline. Planning permission was granted in January 2008 for an extra two floors to be added to the tower to cater for further demand in apartment space. The anticipated completion date was originally summer 2010, however due to the construction moratorium the building was not completed until spring 2011. These extra floors will bring the overall height up from 80.5 metres to 85 metres.
