Windsor House, May 2010

Windsor House (officially known as 9-15 Bedford Street) is a high-rise office building in Bedford Street, Belfast, Northern Ireland. The building was the tallest storeyed building in Ireland before being surpassed by Obel Tower (also in Belfast) and stands at 85 metres (262 feet) tall, with 23 floors.

Being the former tallest building in Ireland, Windsor House is iconic for its tall green elevator shaft and green side wall facade, as well as for its satellite[citation needed] and aerial masts which stand a further seven metres in the air.


In March 2007 plans were made to convert the 80 Meter building into a block of flats after being bought by the county Cavan building firm P Elliot for around 30 Million. However, planning permission would need to be provided for the conversion.


The building houses many private and government organisations and companies, including the Parole Commissioners Office, the Belfast HM Revenue & Customs office, the Information Service of Northern Ireland, AXA Insurance, the NI Parades Commission and the British-Irish Joint Secretariat.

Managing Agents[edit]

The building is currently managed by McConnell Chartered Surveyors.


It is to be converted into a new four star hotel, named Belfast Grand Central. It is due to open in 2018.[1]
