Belfast Regeneration Scheme to Begin in September
A ΓÇ£dynamicΓÇ¥ regeneration scheme for East Belfast is expected to begin next month, with the ┬ú20m project incorporating over 10,000 sq. ft. of office space as it seeks to stimulate both the commercial, residential and community space available in Eastern Belfast.
Utilising a number of contemporary technologies designed to add to the buildings green credentials, the 106,750 sq. ft. project will feature solar panels, green roofs and heat recovery methods.
Speaking to U.TV, Architect Nial O’Neill, one of those behind the project, described the development as a “dynamic scheme” which would be “anchored by a Civic Square which will bustle with activity as people move to-and-fro from work, study, social activities and worship.”
In addition to the new office space the scheme will also provide 5,800 sq. ft. of retail space, seminar facilities and a 300 seat auditorium based around a civic square, acting as a centrepiece that developers hope will become a communal area for the local and business community.
