Phase 2 Bedford Square

Bedford Square Development Phase 2 to include the conservation, alteration, refurbishment and extension to the listed Ewart Building for office use and a 17 Storey new build mixed use development, with ground floor retail, offices above and associated basement car parking; and completion of a new civic square. This £50m investment from McAleer and Rushe is estimated to create 1,800 new jobs and 700 construction jobs.

Issues Encountered

  • The principle of retail and office use at this location
  • The impact of the conservation alteration and extension on the listed building
  • The impact on the setting of the listed building
  • The impact on the surrounding Linen conservation area
  • The impact on the neighbouring amenity of the adjoining and surrounding properties
  • The opportunity to promote economic development and job creation

Our Involvement

Instructed prior to consideration of an amended scheme by the Belfast City Council Planning Committee in July 2016 with a remit of explaining the extent of the conservation aspect of the proposal to elected representatives as well as reinforcing the economic significance of an approval.
