Regeneration & Investment Project Overview

Why is Urban Regeneration Important?

Linen Quarter BID believe that a dense urban environment that is home to a mix of uses helps to create a vibrant and welcoming streetscape that supports active travel, community safety and economic spend.

The Linen Quarter BID area, already home to almost 400 businesses, will continue to grow as a pre-eminent destination for offices, hospitality and city centre living in the coming years. Ongoing and proposed developments within the area total investment worth more than 1 billion GBP and include some of the largest transport schemes in Northern Ireland (e.g. Belfast Grand Central Station and Weavers Cross urban district). There are also a number of exciting hotel and residential developments planned, which, once realized, will add to the already vibrant character of the District.

Currently there are 40+ ongoing and proposed developments within the Linen Quarter BID area and its immediate surroundings. The Belfast Grand Central Station and associated Weavers Cross developments will boost the Durham St / Glengall St area of to the city centre by bringing in a new urban quarter that introduces a large variety of uses and footfall to this part of town. Other major transport and public realm improvement schemes include Streets Ahead phase V, the North-South Glider route, and the Lagan pedestrian / cyclist bridge.

Offices and residential schemes represent the bulk of the developments. There are a number of large office schemes under development / proposed on Linenhall Street as well as on the location of the former Dublin Road cinema (currently occupied by TradeMarket) for Kainos new international headquarters. The Dublin Road area is emerging as a desirable place for city centre living, with various Purpose Built Student Accommodation schemes planned on the Dublin Road cinema site, Filth McNasty’s site, and Fanum House site. The surface car parks along Ormeau Avenue are also earmarked for new housing.

Other type of schemes include new (apart)hotel schemes on Bedford Street (Bedford Yard / The Dean / Scottish Mutual building) as well as Great Victoria Street,  and the refurbishment of the BBC campus on Ormeau Avenue. A new museum is being planned for the Bryson House site.

In this regeneration overview you will find a brief description of the proposed programme along with the current planning status. The document also sets out the associated level of investment and developer (if known).
