Completed in January 2019 the City Quays Multi-Storey Car Park is the latest addition to the City Quays Masterplan for the Belfast Harbour Commission. Located on Donegall Quay Road, adjacent to the M3 motorway and opposite the recently opened City Quays AC Marriott Hotel and the City Quays 1 and 2 office developments, the car park provides 911 parking spaces.
With a variety of coloured cladding to the external envelope the building provides a dynamic addition to the Belfast skyline, from the elevated motorway and rail line, and from the new City Quays buildings along River Lagan. Powder coated coloured aluminium fins, perforated galvanised panels and rainscreen cladding are employed on the facades. Lights, wall graphics and colours are utilised internally for wayfinding and to complement the exterior.
The main contractors were Felix O’Hare. The design team included Doran Consulting structural & civil engineers and ISD mechanical & electrical engineers.
