Family-owned flexible office space provider, Glandore, has announced the expansion of its second location in Belfast City Centre, as it sustainably renovates the ground and first floor of Arthur Place, making it the occupier of the entire building totalling 15,066 sq ft of workspace.

Signalling the company’s confidence in the Belfast market, Glandore has commenced this expansion following the increasing demand for flexible workspace hubs in the city centre. Arthur place is conveniently located directly opposite Arthur House, Glandore’s first location in Belfast which opened its doors in 2006. Together, the two properties offer companies the flexibility to scale from 1 to 200+ desks on flexible terms from 3 months upwards in fully serviced high quality office space which can be custom designed to meet their unique requirements and working styles.

Arthur place, which offers suites ranging from from 440sq ft to 768sq ft across five floors, has been renovated with a focus on sustainability including increased water conservation and waste management practices, use of sustainable materials and low chemical products as well as wellness initiatives and cycle to work schemes.

The property boasts large windows and glossy open plan layouts and is finished to the highest quality, designed to maximise productivity. The additional two new floors have been redesigned by TODD Architects, an award-winning architectural practice based in Belfast and construction work carried out by Wheatcross Construction Ltd.

With a trend towards hybrid working post covid, many medium to larger companies are seeking to right-size their office space to reflect the changes in occupancy levels. Glandore offers the ability to custom design workspace in Belfast, that will now include enhanced amenities onsite including a club room, meeting rooms, barista station, reception and bike storage at Arthur Place.
Established in 2001, Glandore is a leading flexible market operator, run by Michael Kelly and his three daughters Fiona, Clare and Rebecca. Glandore has accommodated an impressive roster of international firms in their offices across Ireland, with high-end workspaces located in Dublin, Cork and Belfast.

Clare Kelly, Glandore Director, said: “We are thrilled to be expanding further into the Belfast market, following the demand for high-quality, flexible workspaces in the city centre. Our mission is to create a dynamic, supportive, and friendly community in which every individual and company can grow. We believe that what is unique about the Glandore experience is the level of genuine care and support we provide to our members.

“Whilst hybrid working is here to stay, there is huge demand for turn-key modern and collaborative workspace that offers full operational & IT support from an experienced team.”

With an increased appetite for dual market business, the extensive network of Glandore members and alumni extends to ten locations across Ireland, allowing cross-border trade to flourish.

Already housing global software provider InTapp on the newly established first floor, Glandore has also been home to and supported the growth of a range of companies such as Rapid 7, Bazzarvoice, Alexander Mann Solutions, Ogletree and Bank of London.
Arthur Place offers customers the convenience of being located on a vibrant pedestrian street, surrounded by some of Belfast’s best restaurants, cafes and shops, as well as all major transport links and is ideal for companies who require the flexibility and scalability to focus on business development and growth.


Arthur Place is available for viewings and bookings.
