Belfast projects worth more than £50m completed last year

By John Mulgrew

More than £50m was spent on major Belfast City Council developments in the last year, it's emerged. And the council says a further £60m will be spent across the city in 2017, including the new Robinson Leisure Centre, a leisure centre in Andersonstown and a £4m upgrade of the 'tropical ravine' at Botanic Gardens.

This year's spending included the building of CS Lewis Square in east Belfast - part of the £40m Connswater Community Greenway project.

Other developments include the new £27m 9 Adelaide building, on Adelaide Street, which will provide accommodation for more than 800 workers.

DUP councillor John Hussey, who is chair of Belfast City Council's strategic policy and resources committee, said: "This significant investment is a sign of the council's confidence in, and commitment to, the city."
