North and Winetavern Street

North and Winetavern Street

Bywater Properties and Ashmour own a 1.25 acre site between North, Winetavern and Gresham Streets in the Smithfield area of 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.

The campus development includes 3 new buildings 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 235,000 sqft floor space being created will be dedicated for office use, accommodating around 1,500 people. The remainder will be a combination of retail, studio and alternative work space that will seek to promote independent enterprise over multinational chains.
