Castlereagh council’s old office space is up for rent
THE base of the former Castlereagh Borough Council, next to Forestside shopping centre in south Belfast, has just gone on the rental market.
Castlereagh merged with Lisburn council three years ago to become one of Northern Ireland’s new 11 ‘super councils’. With the local authority’s new headquarters now based at Lagan Valley Island in Lisburn, much of the former civic building at Upper Galwally is now defunct and could soon become office space.
The 20,400sq ft property is described as an “outstanding headquarter office building with excellent profile” featuring a basement, ground and first floors and 69 on-site car parking spaces.
Letting agent Lisney has confirmed that part of the ground floor within the Bradford Court building will continue to be occupied by Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. Until earlier this month, the council used office space in the building for its Environmental Health Service, which has since moved to Lisburn, and for registration of births, deaths and marriages.
