FOOD AND BEVERAGE / RETAIL OPPORTUNITY AT CITY QUAYS 2
29 September 2016
Belfast Harbour Commissioners (BHC) have freehold title to an area of city centre land, which has been designated as the City Quays Urban Regeneration Area. City Quays is an extension to one of Belfast’s premier business addresses, ‘Clarendon Dock’, which is home to occupiers such as Intel, Capita and Grant Thornton. The City Quays site has been master-planned by Grimshaw Architects London, with several developments complete or underway.
BHC now wish to partner with a food and beverage / retail provider to establish a presence within their most recent development, the City Quays 2 commercial office building. City Quays 2 is BHC’s latest commercial office development. The building will provide c.95,000 square feet of space and sets a new standard for high quality, sustainable Grade A accommodation for Belfast.
The building is currently under construction with an estimated completion date of June 2017. BHC are currently negotiating terms on all floors with a likely building population of 1,000 people. BHC are now seeking a food & beverage / retail operator who will provide a service to occupiers of City Quays 2 as well as occupiers of adjacent buildings and the general public.
BHC see the operation as reflecting the nature of the occupiers locating at City Quays, who are ‘on the go’ health conscious millennials, often working for US employers with 24/7 operations and who have a requirement for a mix of sit-in and to-go options. Potential corporate catering opportunities may also exist directly with tenants.
The unit currently benefits from A1 planning consent, however the landlord will engage with the planning service to secure planning consent suitable for hot food use if required.
