The Belfast Hub is one of the largest regeneration and investment projects in Northern Ireland. Featuring a €193 million redevelopment of the existing rail and bus station, the project will also include the redevelopment of a surrounding 8 hectares site delivering a major brownfield transformation project at the heart of Belfast city centre.
The Belfast Hub will be the new gateway to Belfast – a 21st century passenger experience designed to provide commuters, visitors and residents with a best in class transport experience. But it will be much more than that. As a new place within the city, the Hub will deliver 100,000 sq metres of mixed use development including a range of Grade A offices and associated leisure and retail.

The Belfast Hub will provide the primary gateway to Belfast and create an excellent first impression of a confident and progressive capital city.
It will deliver state of the art links to national and international markets, provide investment opportunities, create new jobs, reduce congestion, and share and support Belfast’s successful growing economy. Passenger numbers using the Belfast Hub are expected to increase from 6.7 million to 10 million a year.
The project will incorporate a large area of commercial development. This includes significant investment opportunities for new Grade A offices, hotels, retail, leisure and residential property. The combined value of the investment could create an additional 2,500 jobs, contributing €72 million in GVA to the local economy.
The Belfast to Dublin Enterprise service will be relocated at the Hub, and will provide more frequent and convenient services to both regional and international travellers. Northern Ireland attracts over two million visitors every year, contributing €685 million in additional spend.
The development will be one of the most important projects in the region. It will help deliver the overall vision of Belfast as a modern European city, attracting tourism and investors, and significantly boosting the regional economy.
