Waterfront City: Belfast’s Major Regeneration Projects
Look back at the history of many great cities and you’ll find that their location is strategically based around access to water. Belfast is no different, sitting on the mouth of Belfast Lough with easy access to the Irish Sea and trade with the word. Belfast’s waterfront has a long heritage of ship building and rope works, and we are drawing confidently on this history to spark new and ambitious plans for the city’s waterfront. Alongside Belfast Harbour, Northern Ireland’s principal maritime gateway and logistics hub, new developments including City Quays, a £250mn redevelopment of 20 acres of ex-shipping land have emerged, creating Grade A office space, 4-star hotel and leisure, retail and car parking. Across the water from City Quays, lies Titanic Quarter, one of the world’s largest urban-waterfront regeneration projects.
Join this session to hear from some of those directly involved in the next phase of waterfront regeneration and share in its plans for to further strengthen Belfast’s reputation as a leading waterfront city.
