New and improved office space is on the way for Belfast, thanks to two new city centre projects.

River House on High Street is to be transformed into 90,000 sq ft of retail and top-end offices after Castleforge Partners, which bought the building last year, won planning permission. CBRE director David Wright - a letting agent for the property, along with McConnell Chartered Surveyors - said the move was a "great vote of confidence".

And Arnott House in nearby Bridge Street will be home to a 6,000 sq ft office site with nearly 80 workstations, operated by flexible office firm Regus. It was the location of department store Arnott's until it closed in 1974 after 137 years in business.

Meanwhile, new lettings by strategic operations firm Actavo and graphic design company Fresh Graphics have been confirmed for Channel Commercial Park at Titanic Quarter.
