Citi buys its Belfast HQ after 10 years
Banking group Citi has confirmed the purchase of the 133,000 sq ft Gateway building in Belfast's Titanic Quarter.
Citi has occupied the building as its sole tenant since it was completed in 2009. While the purchase fee has not been disclosed, Titanic Quarter Ltd put a £34m price tag on the office block in November.
The global bank made its move into Northern Ireland in 2005, and is now one of the biggest employers here. Its workforce stands at 2,600 across Belfast, working in 22 different disciplines.
Citi said yesterday: "The purchase of the building, a decade later, further demonstrates our commitment to Citi's long-term future in Belfast and the UK.
"Citi is proud to be an employer of choice in Belfast and be regarded as a company where all can thrive. Every year, we recruit hundreds of talented people, hire more than 100 graduates, and engage with more than 4,500 university students."
