The Sixth

The Sixth is a major redevelopment project that will bring the iconic former Belfast Telegraph building back into active use.

Delivered by BelTel LLP, the first joint venture by Belfast City Council with a private developer, McAleer and Rushe, this mixed-use scheme will include 30,000 sqm of commercial space, including state-of-the-art workspace, and active ground floor uses such as cafés, restaurants and retail.

Designed by Stirling Prize winning architectural practice Allford Hall Monaghan Morris (AHMM), the project is adjacent to the new Ulster University campus and sits at the heart of an emerging creative district centred on the education, culture, media and technology sectors in Belfast city centre.
