Obel Tower is
a high-rise building located in Belfast at Donegall Quay on the

work on the first stage of the project, on the foundations and a two-story
underground car park, began in January 2006. In mid-2007, construction works
were stopped due to the crisis on the real estate market. On June 17, 2008,
however, construction was resumed, modifying the original design with two
additional storeys. The permit allowing for the addition of the two floors at
the top of the building allowing it to meet the demand for high-rise living
space was issued in January 2008. The expected completion date was originally
scheduled for summer 2010. However, due
to the construction moratorium, the building constrution was not finished until
spring 2011. Additional floors raised the total height from 80.5 meters to a
target height of 88 meters.In April 2011
it was announced, that the London based law firm Allen & Overy is going to
rent the entire available office space of Obel Tower. In October 2011 the local
catering company Mount Charles opened its branded restaurant ‘Fed and Watered’
in one of the Obel Tower’s commercial premises on the ground floor. At first

Ltd. And Donegall Quay Ltd. In early 2014 the Obel Tower has been purchased by
the New York based company Marathon Asset Management for the price of over £ 20
million. The new owner carried out the renovation of the Obel Tower in 2016 at
the cost of £ 2 million. Renovation works included the renovation of public
areas and installation of solar batteries.
