The Hamilton Dock Hotel development site at Belfast’s Titanic Quarter has been offered for sale on the open market. The prime development site is adjacent to Northern Ireland’s premier visitor attraction, Titanic Belfast, and is within a two-minute walk of the Odyssey Complex and a 10-minute walk from Belfast’s main retail district.

The site is within the Titanic Quarter Phase 2 Outline Planning Permission and Full Planning Permission was granted in 2010 for a period of five years for a 244-bedroom hotel.

Offers are invited for the 1.04-acre site, subject to Full Planning Permission for hotel development.

James Eyre, Commercial Director, Titanic Quarter Ltd, said:

“This is a significant opportunity for hotel developers and operators to progress a flagship hotel in the heart of Titanic Quarter. Over the past decade of development and regeneration, Titanic Quarter has evolved into a world-class tourism destination, an international exhibition and conferencing location, a hub of local, national and international businesses, an educational and media campus, and a residential community.”

Titanic Quarter continues to grow with over 100 national and international organisations including Citi, Catalyst Inc, Microsoft, IBM, SAP, HBO and Premier Inn already based there. With 18,000 people who live, work, study and play in Titanic Quarter daily and over one million people visiting Titanic Quarter each year, the Hamilton Dock Hotel site represents a unique development opportunity.

Mr Eyre added:

“Tourism is a key driver of Belfast and Northern Ireland’s economy. Since 2012 Titanic Belfast has attracted over 3.5 million visitors from across 145 countries and was awarded the accolade of ‘World’s Leading Tourist Destination’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards in 2016.

“Northern Ireland welcomed a record 1.9 million out-of-state visitors between January and September 2016 with a visitor spend totalling £658 million. The Hamilton Dock site is perfectly positioned within a key tourism Quarter of Belfast city centre.

“Titanic Belfast and W5, two of Northern Ireland’s top five visitor attractions, are both located in Titanic Quarter. Titanic Quarter is a five-minute drive from the George Best Belfast City Airport and less than a 30-minute drive from Belfast International Airport, making it an easily accessible location for business and tourist visitors.” 

David Wright, Director, CBRE, commented:

“The Hamilton Dock Hotel offers a rare opportunity to acquire a hotel development site in Titanic Quarter and, once developed, will be a further asset to Belfast’s business, conference, leisure and heritage tourism growth. The site has Outline Planning Permission and has had the benefit of Full Planning Permission granted for a 244-bedroom hotel in 2010.  This established building heights at six storeys, and environmental and technical solutions.

“Belfast is experiencing a significant increase in hotel development interest, fuelled by the current under supply of hotel rooms as well as increased leisure tourism and corporate activity. The Hamilton Dock Hotel site provides a prime development opportunity and will be a welcome addition to Titanic Quarter and Belfast.”
