Work on one of Belfast's newest office developments, The Paper Exchange on Chichester Street, will begin this week, creating over 100 construction jobs.

The project will cover 200,000 sq ft of office space including seven high-speed lifts, a private outdoor terrace and showering and changing facilities. It will be built by Heron Bros.

The firm won the multimillion pound contract to deliver the scheme by December 2021.

Designed by Holywood-based Wirefox and TODD Architects, The Paper Exchange is the first significant, privately funded, speculative office development here.

Wirefox development director Joanne McBurney said: "Wirefox has been investing across asset classes in Belfast since 2015 as we strongly believe it has global potential."

Savills and Colliers International have been appointed as joint letting agents to market the scheme, which was first awarded planning approval in 2018.
