A £100m redevelopment of Queen's Quay in Belfast moved a step closer after new plans were lodged at Belfast City Council.

The project involves nearly 800 houses, two hotels, offices, shops and leisure uses including cafes and restaurants.

A company known as Odyssey Millennium Ltd (OML) is involved in the project, with planning advisers Turley.

It's planned for lands between the M3 and the Odyssey complex.

Directors of OML include well-known businessman Mark Cuskeran, the former chief executive of SDC Trailers.

He is joined by Paul McMahon, a past president of Belfast Chamber of Commerce and former director of CastleCourt Shopping Centre.

Meanwhile, a separate public sector project also contains plans for Queen's Quay. Another £100m project, it would bring commercial space, including workspace and 'active' retail and leisure opportunities.

Sign In

The Department for Communities is involved in the proposal. The department advertised for 'expressions of interest' in Queen's Quay nearly three years ago.

The commercial property agency said the site had a "prominent waterfront position" close to landmark developments such as the SSE Arena, Titanic Quarter and the Obel Tower.
