Apartments plan unveiled for Belfast city centre building

The artistic vision behind a bid to transform a listed building in Belfast city centre has been revealed.

Visuals for what the developer, Castlebrooke Investment, calls the Garfield & North project were unveiled yesterday by Colliers Residential.

The London-based developer is seeking to construct 24 apartments at the corner of Garfield Street and North Street in a project that would also include retail and cafe units.

Castlebrooke claimed its development will protect and regenerate the existing structure, with Estelle Hunt, director at Castlebrooke Investments, stating: “We have been looking forward to revealing some of the specific plans we have for the listed buildings on our site for some time.

“Garfield & North will bring an exceptionally high standard of living to the heart of Belfast at a time when demand is growing.

“We have already started work to protect and preserve this listed building.

“We will be undertaking a sensitive regeneration project which will bring one of Belfast’s most treasured built heritage assets back into use.”

Director of residential at Colliers International, Aaron Russell, said: “Demand for city centre living is increasing at a fast pace, driven by young people who want proximity to gyms, restaurants, bars and shops with shorter commute times to high skilled and high paying office jobs.

“There is a challenge to meet this demand in Belfast.”
