Ambitious plans are afoot to convert a passenger ferry terminal in Belfast into a new public attraction and visitor experience project.

The proposals involve the former Stena terminal on Ballast Quay, which sits directly across Belfast Lough from Titanic Belfast and Titanic Film Studios.

In 2015, the former terminal was transformed into a film set for the big screen adaptation of JG Ballard’s novel High-Rise.

Recently, the quay has become the interim base for the Belfast to Heysham crossing during the £15 million redevelopment of Victoria Terminal 2.

Start-up company Teliporter KL Ltd has informed the city council of its intentions and is planning to reveal more about its proposals next month before submitting a planning application.
