McAslan opens Belfast office

John McAslan and Partners and Arup's Belfast Transport Hub: Station Square from bus station

Practice’s new base is stone’s throw from transport hub development site

John McAslan & Partners has opened a new studio in Belfast, a short distance from the transport hub it won planning consent for in 2019.

The practice said it hoped its base in the city – its fourth office – would allow it to develop existing relationships in Northern Ireland and lead to new collaborations sparked by the Belfast Transport Hub, which is due to open in 2025.

Early-stage enabling works for the project, which will bring together rail, bus and taxi services in the city centre, are currently under way. The hub is at the heart of the wider Weavers Cross regeneration project that McAslan masterplanned in partnership with Arup. The practice has also designed Saltwater Square to the front of the new hub, which will be a grand civic, social and shared space that will also host events.
