Real estate company Osborne+Co's proposal for The Waterside, a £400m masterplan to regenerate the 1.7 million-square-foot former historic Sirocco Works site of Belfast, has received outline planning approval from the Belfast City Council. The site plan, which was conceived by architectural firm Henning Larsen, won the Future Projects Urban Design Award at the World Architecture News Awards.

Upon completion, The Waterside will link the city center with wider East Belfast. There will be office space for approximately 8,000 persons, 675 apartments, a hotel, cultural and leisure facilities, River Lagan bridge improvements and work spaces.

The project is being overseen by Osborne+Co chairman Chris Kane. Flan McNamara, former project director on the £2BN London Bridge Quarter (and The Shard) is the construction director.
