A public consultation exercise has just finished for what would be Northern Ireland’s tallest building, a 30-storey apartment block proposed for the Sailortown area of Belfast.

The scheme, the brainchild of Lisburn-based Amigo Developments, is proposed for a site at Clarendon Dock and would involve the demolition of the derelict Pat's Bar and Rotterdam Bar, which sit back-to-back at Pilot Street and Princes Dock Street.

As well as 195 flats, the project would include a shop and restaurant on the ground floor, as well as a private cinema and a room for residents to practise Pilates and yoga.  A rooftop bar is also planned, according to planning consultancy O'Toole & Starkey.

It said: “Clarendon Dock and the surrounding area of Belfast is in the process of undergoing significant transition, with various major developments having been completed and approved in recent years.

“Taller buildings are part and parcel of the emerging urban fabric of the area.”
