A new nine-storey office building is being developed in the heart of Belfast city centre, Ulster Business can reveal.
The Well is a 35,000 sq ft scheme, which will see the former offices of HMRC on Wellington Place transformed into “Belfast’s healthiest office building.
It’s been developed by Lotus Property and designed by Like Architects – the firm behind the nearby Merchant Square building, now home to PwC.
The building, which is being marketed by Osborne King and CBRE NI, is due to be completed by the end of 2022. It’s understood staff wellbeing, air quality and a ‘door to desk’ contactless system are among some of the scheme’s selling points.
The original building was bought by Lotus Property, after HMRC built its flagship Erskine House building to house its staff, based on Chichester Street.
Lotus owns a range of other major developments in Northern Ireland, including The Boulevard in Banbridge. However, this is the first office scheme it’s embarked on in Belfast city centre.
