A new four-star hotel set for Belfast Harbour is currently being fitted out as work completes on the building’s structure. The new £25m AC Marriott hotel will sit beside the City Quays office developments.

It’s due to open at the start of 2018. The 188-bedroom hotel will also include a new Jean Christophe-Novelli restaurant. Gilbert Ash is developing the building.

The hotel will feature a 104-seat restaurant, bar, lounge, gym and meeting rooms.

Meanwhile, work has also just begun on building an £18m car park for the City Quays development.

The 907-car space development is the latest phase of the waterside scheme, and will take around 12 months to complete.

The first and second phases of City Quays have already attracted top-end company tenants such as international law firm Baker & McKenzie, while broadcaster UTV will set up home at City Quays 2 next year.
