Revisions to £500m Belfast Tribeca plan 'have support of the public'
The London developer behind the £500m Tribeca scheme in Belfast has said that 80% of respondents to its public consultation expressed support for the project.
Castlebrooke has submitted its amendments to the outline planning application for the scheme, which encompasses large areas of Donegall Street and North Street. It followed a series of open sessions over a 10-week period.
The developer said more than 350 people visited its public exhibition. The biggest change to the original proposal is a 27-storey building on the corner of Rosemary Street and North Street, which would be cut to 10 storeys under the new scheme.
Castlebrooke said many of the non-listed facades on Donegall Street and North Street will now be retained. Plans for a major retail store have been dramatically downsized, with a controversial proposal for an underground car park at Writer's Square also dropped.
Castlebrooke has also committed to bringing back North Street Arcade in a new format.
