Thought to be a first- of-it­skind on the island of Ire­land, each apart­ment will have the op­tion of a cut­ting- edge smart home in­tel­li­gence sys­tem al­low­ing you to con­trol heat­ing, light­ing and other ap­pli­ances from your smart phone.

Each prop­erty comes wil an Ama­zon Echo “Alexa” per­sonal as­sis­tant.

As well as high- spec lux­ury fit­tings, there will be 51 on- site car park­ing spa­ces and 20 com­mu­nal berths for cy­clists.

Barnett De­vel­op­ments CEO, Nick Barnett, said: “Belfast is on the cusp of a re­turn­ing con­fi­dence and de­mand for city cen­tre liv­ing like many of our UK and Euro­pean neigh­bours.

“Port­land 88 of­fers the next gen­er­a­tion of liv­ing with our ‘smart’ home in­tel­li­gence sys­tem and prime lo­ca­tion.

“As prop­erty de­vel­op­ers, we recog­nise that in order for cities to thrive, they need peo­ple liv­ing in the heart of them which is why we chose this prime site op­po­site the Gas Works in the City – within walk­ing dis­tance to all dis­tricts as well as be­ing close to mo­tor­ways and air­ports.”

An open evening tonight from 5pm un­til 7pm at Col­liers New Homes in Tal­bot Street will give peo­ple the chance to tour the apart­ments us­ing a vir­tual re­al­ity head­set.
