A planning application for city centre apartments on Academy Street in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter has been submitted.
If approved, the 19 storey development comprising 105 one and two bed apartments will be the first 'build to rent' proposal in Belfast. Designs include an active ground floor with communal space for tenants, management facilities and a proposed café / retail unit.
Anthony Best, Director of Lacuna Developments explained: "Belfast is playing catch-up with this shift in residential development and investment. Despite ambitious plans to increase the city’s population by 66,000 by 2035, our proposal for Academy Street is currently the only build to rent development proposed in the city."
