Four more Armagh City Centre heritage buildings restored

Four more Armagh City Centre heritage buildings have been restored as part of a major heritage-led regeneration programme. The Armagh City Townscape Heritage project has invested £2.9 million to bring four historic buildings back into sustainable use with ground level retail and commercial spaces and modern living accommodation on the upper levels.

Councillor Kevin Savage, Chair of the Economic Development and Regeneration Committee said:

“This is a fantastic transformation that has brought vibrancy to this part of the city, with a major works to these vacant and derelict properties. I’m delighted to see the works come to fruition and the many benefits it brings with new businesses already accommodating city centre retail space and increasing footfall to our urban centres.

Dr Sally Montgomery, Northern Ireland Committee Member at The National Lottery Heritage Fund commented:
“Thanks to National Lottery players we have been able to invest in several Townscape Heritage projects in the area and have made a further commitment over the next ten years to invest in the Armagh City, Banbridge, and Craigavon Borough Council area through our Heritage Places initiative.
