DSD Launch BT1 Gateway Belfast Development Proposal

The Department for Social Development is seeking public comment for a key gateway site to Belfast city centre - BT1 Gateway. The 1.2 acre site is located at the junction of Carrick Hill and North Street and entirely within public ownership.

In 2010 Benoy Architects, Peter Brett Associates and Drivers Jonas Deloitte began developing a regeneration proposal for the site.

The preferred development option suggests a mixed use development, comprising a convenience foodstore, hotel and undercroft car parking. These uses reflect market analysis and a stakeholder consultation process with a focus on commercial attractiveness, local employment opportunities and reconnecting with North Street and the Shankill.
