The Department for International Trade, alongside Invest NI, has announced a commercial property portfolio for Northern Ireland worth more than £1.3 billion.

The portfolio aims to attract both UK and international investors to Northern Ireland, with specific focus on office space, residential and hotel/retail opportunities. Recent research from CBRE identified Belfast as the world’s third fastest growing office market.

Factors such as a young population, good quality education, and a thriving tourism sector is seen as an attractive offer to investors; indeed 75% of the 900 international businesses already located in Northern Ireland are continuing to reinvest in the country.*

The projects featured as part of the portfolio are:

Titanic Quarter: Further expansion to include film studios and post-production facilities, as well as office and residential developments.

Weavers Cross: With the development of the nearby Transport Hub, there is potential for offices, residential, hotel and retail.

Sirocco Quays: Mixed use development of offices, hotel, residential, retail and leisure.

One Bankmore Square: Former site of a Movie House Cinema, full planning permission has been grated for Grade-A offices.

Corporation Square: £92 million development including hotel, offices and residential – with potential to tie in to York Street Interchange.

Norwich Union House: (Corner of Fountain Street/Castle Street) Potential for offices and retail in the heart of the city centre.

Baptist Church: Grade-A offices close to the new Transport Hub.

Gordon McElroy, Director at MKB Law states: “This recent announcement is a significant boost for the city and Northern Ireland as a whole. As 2016 President of the Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce, our manifesto for the city highlighted the demand for further investment and regeneration and I am delighted to see many aspects of this coming to fruition.”
