DATES AND LOCATIONS ANNOUNCED FOR PUBLIC EXHIBITION ON TRIBECA BELFAST PLANNING AMENDMENTS 

Members of the public will be able to see a series of positive amendments to the outline planning application for Tribeca Belfast for the first time at a public exhibition held by Castlebrooke Investments which will open at 2pm on Monday 29th July 2019 at the former Mackeys Opticians unit on 6-8 North Street, Belfast.

The voluntary ten week public consultation process, which comes ahead of the submission of the proposal in Autumn 2019, was launched at the end of June when it was revealed that Castlebrooke Investments has committed to bringing North Street Arcade back into use in a new format, with space designed for independent retailers.

The height of the Grade A office block on the corner of Rosemary Street and North Street, which was initially intended to be 27 storeys, has now been reduced to 10 storeys. There is also an increased allowance for green spaces, courtyards and residential space in line with the Belfast Agenda.

The new plans incorporate a greater degree of retention of non-listed building fabric which further protects the streetscape.

Tribeca Belfast

Tribeca Belfast is a £500m urban regeneration scheme on a 12-acre site located beside St Anne’s Cathedral bounded by Royal Avenue, Donegall Street, Lower Garfield Street and Rosemary Street. Sensitive refurbishment work is already underway to preserve the listed Garfield & North building on Lower Garfield Street.

A newly appointed team from world-class architectural design firm Squire & Partners has worked alongside conservation architects from Belfast-based Consarc Design Group on the amendments.

Jonathan Mitchell, director of Castlebrooke Investments, said:

“Today we have revealed a series of dates when the public can come and see our reviewed plans for the future of Tribeca Belfast. Importantly there will be the opportunity to provide feedback in person at these events, as well as online via a dedicated website. Interested parties who register via the website will also be able to join our conservation architects from Consarc Design Group on walking tours of the site. The exhibition space will also be available outside of the listed dates upon request.

“We believe that the changes we have made address many of the areas of concern which have been raised to date and it has been great to see a very positive response to these plans. Over the last three weeks we have held a series of meetings with city stakeholders, all of which have helped to shape the vision for the future of the city centre. We will continue to listen as we move through this voluntary process.”
