The first Corn Exchange was built on this site in the 1830s. This was demolished at the turn of the century and replaced by a larger structure in 1903. The Corn & Produce Exchange building was used a trading hub by farmers and traders before falling into disuse after the Second World War.
In the 1980s and 90s it was used as a market by independent traders but was severely damaged by an IRA bomb in 1996.
The building reopened as The Triangle shopping centre in 2000. This closed in 2014; reopening as a dining destination the following year.
