EXTERNAL work has now been completed on one of the largest ever speculative office developments in the north.

Belfast Harbour’s 16 storey City Quays 3 building will put around 250,000 sq ft of grade A office space on the market when completed later this year.

Farrans Construction, which started work in 2019, has now completed the topping out milestone, with around 600 people working on the project to date.

Belfast Harbour chief executive Joe O’Neill said the latest milestone brings the trust port a step closer to its vision for the waterfront site as a vibrant place to work, live, visit and invest.

“City Quays is already home to a growing community of diverse blue-chip businesses, with offices at City Quays 1 and 2 fully let and over 1,000 people working in the buildings,” he said.

Farrans’ project manager Noel Cosgrove added: “We know that the people of Belfast have been watching the progress on City Quays 3 and in the last week we have fitted the final glass panels to successfully top out on this impressive structure.

“As a team we have a real sense of pride in what we are delivering here. The views from the building over the marina, Belfast Lough and the whole city will mean that every day will be different in this bright workspace.”
