£70 million Grade A office developments receive green light from Planning Committee

Published on 14th August 2018

Two major new Belfast office developments worth a combined £70 million received the green light from Belfast City Council’s Planning Committee this evening.

Members approved proposals for the £50m first phase of the landmark Belfast Waterside development and the £20m 11-storey Graham House development on Albert Square in the city centre.

The Belfast Waterside 28,476 sqm Grade A office scheme will bring an initial £50m investment and deliver the first major employment activity at the former Howden Sirocco site in almost 20 years, accommodating up to 2,500 employees.

A 13 storey office accommodation building, including a retail unit on the ground floor alongside café and restaurant units, will be the first step in creating modern workspace for 11.5 per cent of the 46,000 new jobs that Belfast City Council is seeking to create by 2035 as part of the Belfast Agenda. The plan also includes landscaping and public realm works, a pocket park and pedestrian and cycle access.
