Belfast Inner North West Masterplan,
Client: Belfast City Council
Brief: Renewal of a city centre
he Inner North West is an underdeveloped area of the city centre. It is in need of significant investment to ensure coherent proposals come forward on the many vacant sites in the area. At the same time, the INW needs to be developed mindful of wider linkages and connections with other parts of the city centre and adjacent residential neighbourhoods. The INW Masterplan therefore seeks to create a new city centre mixed neighbourhood that: incorporates a mix of uses, including residential, commercial, retail and leisure, all integrated through a strong and cohesive public realm; takes into consideration the heritage of the area and the historic urban grain; reinstates the historically vibrant economy of the Inner North West area; and promotes ‘city centre living’, with its social and environmental benefits. By considering this area holistically, this masterplan served to assist the council promote the development of a high quality and interconnected built environment which will stimulate investment, growth, wellbeing and broad opportunities for the city and region.
