Plans to convert the Scottish Mutual Building in Belfast into a 40-key boutique hotel have been given the green light, according to a report in the Belfast Telegraph.

Tullymore House, which owns and operates Galgorm Resort and Spa in Ballymena, has proposed the transformation of the century-old building, on the corner of Bedford Street and Donegall Square.

The proposal will lead to the creation of 180 full and part-time jobs when it opens in late 2015, with 100 jobs to be created during the construction phase.

All of the building’s original features will be retained during the works, which comprise the creation of two bars and two restaurants on the ground and first floors, and 10 serviced apartments alongside hotel rooms on the upper three floors.
