J3373 : The Lincoln Centre site, Belfast

The Lincoln Centre site, Belfast
The Lincoln Centre site, Belfast
This vacant site between Wellwood Street and Hope Street is due for development as the Lincoln Centre – offices, apartments and a hotel. Given the size of the development and the continuing story of the recession the word is that it will not all happen at the same time. Part of the site (top right) is used as a public car park.
Development site, Gt Victoria Street/Bruce Street, Belfast
A development site, at the corner of Gt Victoria Street and Bruce Street which was to have been the Lincoln Centre “a flagship office building, Days Hotel Belfast, apartments, a health and fitness club, restaurants, retail and basement parking. Located at the heart of Belfast's commercial and leisure district and next to a major transport interchange, the Lincoln Centre will be Belfast's most prestigious address”. It became the subject of litigation between the owner and the Northern Ireland Housing Executive. Pending redevelopment it was used as a public car park (apparently without planning permission and, I understand, subsequently closed following enforcement action taken by the Planning Service) as well as being the car park for patrons of Days Hotel.
