THE DAVID KEIR BUILDING QUEENS UNIVERSITY BELFAST Ref-774

The David Keir Building is named after the eminent Vice-Chancellor Sir David Lindsay Keir (1895–1973). Opened in 1959, the construction of the building marked the beginning of a great expansion of the University following the Second World War.

 

Stranmillis is an area in south Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is also an electoral ward for Belfast City Council, part of the Laganbank district electoral area. As part of the Queen's Quarter, it is the location for prominent attractions such as the Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens and is popular among tourists. The area is located on the Stranmillis Road, with the Malone Road to the west and the River Lagan to the east.

 

Stranmillis Road breaks away from the Malone Road at the Ulster Independent Clinic, arches round eastwards toward the Lagan before rejoining the Malone Road. The north of the road is the area most popular with students and young professionals, with many shops and restaurants, the south of the road is mainly housing.

 

The Malone and Stranmillis Historic Urban landscape was in 2010 added to the tentative list of sites proposed for addition to the List of World Heritage Sites of the United Kingdom as an area of architectural interest featuring examples of the Arts and Crafts Movement.
