City Quays 3 is a proposed 16-storey, 250,000ft2 office building.

Belfast Harbour appointed RPP Architects in 2016 to design the building and a planning application was submitted to the Department for Infrastructure in May 2017 (LA04/2017/1090/RM).

A construction tender for the £46m project was issued in February 2017.

The Department for Infrastructure issued a notice of opinion to approve the City Quays 3 planning application in January 2019.

Farrans Construction commenced site enabling works in the last week of May 2019.

Quinn Piling installed CFA piles (some up to 34m) on the site between June – November 2019.

Farrans Construction ‘topped out’ the concrete lift and stair core during early July and the steel frame of the building is expected to follow during early August 2020.
