New Proposals - Phase 2

Plug and Play Creative Cluster

Status: Pre-Application Community Consultation

At the heart of the site will be a unique 7,000 square metre ‘plug and play’ Creative workspace. This unique central building will be designed to support a vibrant digital and creative community, with spaces for local enterprises to establish and grow alongside more established operators. The building will be a focal point for business and community to connect at the heart of the riverside site. A location to support collaboration, content creation, local skills, employment and social purpose ventures.

This unique space will function as the lynchpin of Belfast Waterside’s creative ecosystem, and could provide an eclectic range of activities and will provide a user-led approach to regeneration. Through the use of technology and flexible internal spaces, the building will adapt to the needs of the users inside.

Residential – Delivering New Homes

Status: Pre-Application Community Consultation

The first phase of Belfast Waterside’s residential development will provide up to 420 city centre homes, comprising a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments. The residential proposals will provide a mix of homes including:

  •  Social Housing
  • Private for Sale
  • Affordable for Sale

These residential proposals will help deliver much needed city centre homes with an important mix of tenures. This is first step in delivering up to 700 new homes as part of a wider mixed-use masterplan to create a vibrant blend of housing, office, hotel, retail and other leisure and community uses. Located within a short walking distance to the city core, excellent public transport connections, and existing neighbourhood amenities, Belfast Waterside can provide sustainably located city centre homes.

The final mix of the types, tenures is yet to be finalised, as is the operator for the social housing units. These decisions will be informed by the ongoing pre-application community consultation.

Submitted Proposals - Phase 1

Outline Masterplan

Status: Planning Application Submitted

Last year we began a conversation with local communities and city stakeholders about our plans to invest £400 million to regenerate, revitalise and reconnect Belfast Waterside with the rest of the city. You can find our consultation boards here [link to consultation page]. To date, we have consulted upon, and submitted an outline masterplan for the former Sirocco Engineering Works site. We expect to receive a decision on these proposals from Belfast City Council planners and councillors later this year.

Premium Office Development

Status: Planning Permission Granted

The first phase of development proposed at Belfast Waterside will be a £50 million Grade A office development of 25,000 sq. metres. The office accommodation is the first stage of ambitious proposals to regenerate Belfast Waterside into a river-side destination. A detailed planning application was approved by Belfast City Council in August 2018. We anticipate construction of this scheme will begin in early 2019.
