Belfast Grand Central

Belfast, UK. 2024

Belfast Grand Central is a new fully integrated multi-modal transport hub. Designed by John McAslan + Partners with Arup, it will replace the existing outmoded and cramped bus and railway stations on the 10ha city-centre site. The current stations have reached capacity, with a forecasted 50 percent increase in passenger numbers within the foreseeable future. John McAslan + Partners’ scheme, which is currently under construction, incorporates a 135,000m² mixed-use development masterplanned by the practice, which will be key to the regeneration of this part of the city and will be built in stages over the next decade or so.  


Belfast Grand Central will be a catalyst for the city’s regeneration and will play a pivotal role in making public transport your first choice for travel in Northern Ireland, whilst positioning Belfast as a modern, confident and progressive city.’

Chris Conway, Translink Group Chief Executive


'This major development of an integrated bus and rail transport facility will form a key gateway into Belfast’s city centre. Our scheme improves permeability across the site, integrates the new station with the existing city grain and creates new civic spaces – a high quality urban realm befitting this progressive and ambitious city.'

John McAslan, Executive Chairman, John McAslan + Partners
