Bywater Properties and Ashmour own a 1.25 acre site between North, Winetavern and Gresham Streets in the Smithfield area of Belfast.
The Smithfield Yard development is in the old heart of the city. It is an area of the city undergoing an exciting period of transition with a number of developments underway, including the new Ulster University Belfast campus, which has brought over 15,000 students and staff into the city centre, and opposite the £100 million Belfast Region City Deal “Belfast Stories”, which will be a unique visitor destination of unprecedented scale and ambition in the heart of the city centre. It’s home to a growing population of students, creatives, independents, entrepreneurs and creative office developments.
The proposal will transform a surface car park into a 550 unit Purpose Built Student Accommodation development, with significant leisure, sports and work space incorporated throughout the building. Completion is planned to allow for an opening for the 2026 / 27 academic year.
