Situated along Belfast’s iconic waterfront, City Quays is a £275 million, office led regeneration project located on former docklands within Belfast City Centre, offering unparalleled views across the River Lagan, while remaining close to the City’s core.
City Quays, which is comprised of commercial offices in City Quays 1, City Quays 2 and the newly completed City Quays 3, is Belfast Harbour’s response to ongoing demand by inward investors and indigenous firms for new Grade A office space in Belfast.
Developing high-quality offices in the Harbour Estate has been successful in attracting blue-chip employers to Belfast, and support local businesses as they grow.
City Quays 1 and 2 offer a total of 18,00 square metres of office space, and have been designed to provide column free rectilinear works spaces, allowing maximum space planning efficiency and flexibility.
City Quays 3, Belfast Harbour’s most recent development project, is now the largest Grade ‘A’ office development in Belfast with office fit-outs commencing Q2 2022.
This 16-storey 250,000 square feet, highly environmentally sustainable building, will include a tenant ‘wellbeing space’ together with views to the inner leisure harbour.
All three of the City Quays office buildings have been developed to comply with BREEAM ‘Excellent’ ratings, an industry recognised award for sustainability, which places them in the top 10% of sustainable new buildings in the UK.
The depth and strength of the occupier base in City Quays stands testament to Belfast Harbour’s strategy of providing high quality, flexible, and highly sustainable buildings.
Current tenants of City Quays include Baker & McKenzie, ABL Group, BRS Golf, UTV, Aflac and TPICAP.
Please contact the City Quays development team for more information on letting office space in City Quays.
Other City Quays developments include a four-star, 188-bed, AC by Marriott hotel with a Michelin Chef Jean-Christophe Novelli restaurant and a 900-space multi-storey car park designed to complement the high quality office space adjacent. Details of the car park can be found here.

City Quays Gardens
Belfast Harbour has also unveiled plans for a multi-million pound investment in its public space to create a vibrant new ‘green’ urban garden on a 0.8 hectare site adjacent to the City Quays buildings and the historic Belfast Harbour Office. City Quays Gardens will be developed with sustainability and environmental excellence as a key design focus to achieve the ‘One Planet Living’ environmental accreditation, a first in Northern Ireland. The proposed development will also provide new wellbeing amenity for people working in City Quays, as well as local and visiting communities, while blending the rich industrial and maritime heritage of the area with an innovative and sustainable design.
Marriott International was selected as the brand for the new City Quays Hotel on Belfast’s waterfront under a franchise operating agreement with Interstate Europe Hotels and Resorts. The four star AC Hotel by Marriott Belfast further enhances City Quays by offering the following:-
- 188 rooms
- Signature restaurant and bar
- Meeting space
