Regal development at Titanic Quarter is now available to let

By John Mulgrew

A major commercial development located in Belfast’s burgeoning Titanic Quarter is now available to new business tenants.

The King’s Works premises is a 102,000 sq ft site, which could be used for distribution, logistics, warehousing and manufacturing, or film and television production.

The area was previously home to Howden UK, formerly Sirocco Engineering Works, which closed its doors last year with the loss of around 100 jobs.

The site is part of Channel Commercial Park, which is located on the Queen’s Road, and currently close to huge old Norwegian rigs which are being refurbished by Harland & Wolff.

Channel Commercial Park is already home to tenants such as HBO, Bombardier, Sulzer and Catagen. It’s made up of 89,505 sq ft of warehouse space, along with offices, other amenity space and car parking.

Commercial property agents Lisney and CBRE have been jointly appointed by Titanic Quarter to market the premises. 

James Eyre, Titanic Quarter’s commercial director, said there are now more than 100 companies, employing 4,000 people, within the area.

“King’s Works lends itself to a wide range of uses including logistics, manufacturing and television and film production.

“Opportunities of this scale and flexibility are rare within central Belfast and we expect the premises to generate significant interest.”

Andrew Gawley, associate director at Lisney, said King’s Works represents “a major commercial opportunity with a scale and location that sets it apart from the rest of the market”.

“At 102,000 sq ft, plus the option to secure an additional 37,000 sq ft, leaves of 11.5m and high power availability, it is one of the largest and most versatile warehouse units available.

“The fantastic location within Channel Commercial Park, Titanic Quarter and with close proximity to Belfast City Airport, Belfast Harbour and the motorway network, helps make King’s Works unique.”

Lisa McAteer, associate director at CBRE, said: “With up to 139,000 sq ft available, King’s Works has the potential to support a diverse array of business requirements.

“With two acres of car parking and yard space surrounding it, we expect to see competitive interest, especially given that the expectation for 2016 is that there will be a demand for industrial space from global logistics companies looking to establish or expand operations in Northern Ireland.”

There have been a number of developments in the Titanic Quarter in  the last few months.
