Connecting the East Bank into the City Centre
Proposals for the 16-acre site will include a landmark pedestrian and cycle footbridge creating a new connection from the city core to the east of the city.
The bridge and masterplan will emphasise the re-integration of the East Bank with the rest of the city. In so doing it will help to link the whole East Belfast community with the city centre.
Proposals for residential development will follow early in the new year.
Belfast Waterside will regenerate the currently derelict site with a mix of 750 new homes including social housing, modern office accommodation and vibrant public spaces.
The proposals will create construction jobs and modern workspaces for approximately 5,500 people, contributing to the 46,000 new jobs Belfast City Council are seeking to create by 2035.
