Belfast Riverside Development Gets Approval

#BELFAST LOUGH - Major development plans for the land adjacent to the Odyssey complex on the waterfront in Belfast have been approved, as BBC News reports.

The Odyssey Quays scheme comprises two hotels; multi-storey car parking; retail space; cafés, restaurants and bars; and residential blocks with 800 apartments; to be located next to the site of the Odyssey Arena and the W5 Science Centre on the River Lagan feeding into Belfast Lough.

Main features of the proposal, as submitted by the Odyssey Trust, include a residential riverfront tower, a new civic plaza in front of the Odyssey Arena and a redeveloped promenade along the Lagan.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
