Henning Larsen's masterplan was the winner in the Future Projects Urban Design Award, being praised by the awards judges as a “tasteful and well conceived plan.”

Henning Larson commented;
From Copenhagen, we know that harbors have an enormous potential to activate public life in a city. The new Belfast Waterside will take full advantage of the River Lagan. The masterplan will create the framework for people to feel part of a shared public life.
As part of the transformation, it was essential to ensure outdoor comfort in the area. Analyzing the thermal microclimate, we have applied an effective scale-gradient strategy to the project. Instead of winds being guided through the streets, the strategy of placing the lower buildings towards the waterfront guides winds over the buildings. Our studies show this approach will reduce wind speeds significantly, prolonging the comfortable outdoor season from 9 weeks up to 25 weeks.


What is Belfast Waterside?

• 750 new homes

• 1.7 million square foot mixed use City Centre development

• Grade A offices

• Hotel & serviced apartments

• Proposal for new pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting the site directly into the City Centre
