Translink has announced the submission of a Proposal of Application Notice ahead of the submission of a major planning application later this year for the Lanyon Place Car Park Development in Belfast.
This exciting project will see the redevelopment of the surface car park at the Station to an exemplary building, which, through innovative design, will become one of the city’s healthiest workplaces.
In recent years this strategic site has benefited from a number of office developments in the immediate vicinity which have transformed the area into a vibrant business hub, reinstating the urban form. This new Lanyon Place development, as the last significant remaining plot, presents an ideal opportunity to further regenerate and enhance this strategic city centre location.
Paddy Anderson, Group Chief Financial Officer at Translink said, “We are pleased to be taking these important redevelopment plans forward as part of our longer-term strategy. As a regeneration project, we look forward to enhancing the transformation of Lanyon Place by delivering a world class commercial office development on a site which is an important gateway on a prominent arterial route within the city.”
“This major development follows other work by Translink in enhancing the area, including the new Glider halts and the refurbishment of the frontage and foyer of Lanyon Place Station and further emphasises our commitment to contributing to this vibrant hub.”
“We are looking forward to the pre-application community consultation and would encourage everyone to have their say on our proposals” said Paddy.
The innovative proposal aims to create a world class example of environmentally conscious design which will employ sustainable, low carbon construction methods. The Sustainability and Wellbeing targets include BREEAM Excellent and consideration of WELL Certifications as well as the use of sustainable materials throughout the construction phase.
Once completed it will be a high quality, accessible and flexible space that provides workspaces, informal meeting and breakout areas, formal meeting spaces and private working areas. The strategic site is also within walking distance of a range of public transport options and is well located in relation to the rest of the city, ensuring walkability for occupants.
