Outlining our Renewed Ambition
As we continue to live with COVID-19 and its impact on all our lives, we must look towards the future and position our city and city region to take advantage of every opportunity.
Now is the time for us to be bold and brave in our vision for investment and continue the partnership and collaboration to realise the real estate ambitions of Belfast and the wider city region.
Collectively, we will continue to build on what has already been achieved to maintain our competitiveness and attractiveness, ensuring occupiers and investors recognise the Belfast investment opportunity.
Renewed Ambition – a joint public and private sector led initiative – aims to shape how we reimagine the future of our city now and act together to deliver it in the months and years ahead.
Over the past number of years, we have increasingly worked collaboratively to showcase investment and development opportunities across Belfast as we seek to deliver on our shared ambitions for the city as an exciting place to work, live, play and invest.
Renewed Ambition is just one element of an extensive plan laid out by Belfast City Council which details how it will support the city as it continues to address the impact of COVID-19 on our spaces and places and, crucially, how the real estate sector can respond as we learn to live with the virus.
Renewed Ambition will:
- Deliver a programme of content aimed at the real estate audience, both here and further afield;
- Drive a programme of engagement and advocacy to facilitate two-way conversations with policy makers and politicians, and showcase real opportunities to the global investor community;
- Through media and stakeholder engagement, reinforce that Belfast is ready for investment with so many of the key factors needed for recovery already in place;
- Deliver research to show the positive impact that real estate investment delivers for our communities.
