Divis Tower

Divis Tower, at 61m tall and with 20 floors, is one of Belfast’s tallest buildings. Divis was built in 1966 and is now the only surviving structure from the Divis Flats complex. The positioning of the tower between the Falls Road and Shankill Road provided unrivalled views of West Belfast from the upper floors and this was soon recognised by the British Army who converted the top two floors in the 1970s to provide a restricted observation post. It was only as recently as 2005 that this was decommissioned and in 2007 the Housing Executive began the process to return the top two floors to residential use and provide a new roof to the building.

Get special access to this iconic building, see spectacular views of the city and hear stories from a resident of the tower.
