Bywater Properties and Ashmour own a 1.25 acre site between North, Winetavern and Gresham Streets, Belfast.

Bywater Properties and Ashmour own a 1.25 acre site between North, Winetavern and Gresham Streets, Belfast. The proposal will transform a car park next to Belfast’s Smithfield Market and close to Ulster University’s new campus into an ecosystem of diverse workspaces, independent retail and SME and maker spaces.

Three new buildings are proposed, offering a spectrum of office and workspace typologies alongside the refurbishment of the listed Butcher’s Building and the Victorian terraces on Gresham and Winetavern Streets. A significant amount of the 22,000 sqm floor space being created will be dedicated for office use, accommodating around 1,500 people. The remainder will be a combination of workshop, retail, studio and co-working space that will seek to promote independent enterprise over multinational chains.
