Construction of new 17-storey office development providing 213,000 sq ft exemplar Grade A office accommodation in arguably the best location in Belfast City Centre.
The listed Ewart building is the only remaining part of the former Ewart’s linen manufacturing complex, dating from the late 1800’s and will be sensitively restored. The historic building and the new build structure will be linked at first and second floor, grouped around a central courtyard.
In an open plan workplace environment, when fully occupied, the two buildings will have capacity to accommodate some 2,000+ employees.
The new 17 storey building directly abuts the exposed party wall of the adjoining Invest Northern Ireland Headquarters and is separated from the refurbished Ewart building by an open walkway on first and second floors, maintaining the permeability for pedestrians into and through the public square, proposed within the original site masterplan.
