Belfast City Council and McAleer & Rushe are planning to transform the former Belfast Telegraph site, renamed “The Sixth” into a visionary new development that will provide state-of-the-art workspace in a rapidly changing location within the City Centre.
The vision for The Sixth will bring significant benefits to the locality and the city, creating a contemporary public atrium through the site and new retail and restaurant opportunities. The proposed scheme which is immediately adjacent to the new £250m Ulster University campus will mark the pinnacle of flexible and innovative workspace design. Leading UK Architect, AHMM have been appointed to design c.230,000 sq.ft of supremely connected workspace that has the flexibility to accommodate global headquarters with floorplates of up to 30,000 sq.ft. The development would work equally well for smaller companies in the professional and burgeoning creative and technology sectors that require the ability to expand.
