A UK first for logistics and distribution

Our role

  • We secured planning permission on behalf of Titanic Quarter Limited (TQL) for a 340,000 sq ft logistics warehouse facility at Queen’s Road, Belfast, Titanic Quarter.
  • The proposals for a new state-of-the-art distribution facility were presented to a special meeting of Belfast City Council’s Planning Committee and received unanimous support to approve.
  • The proposals, known as Kingsworks, comprise the erection of a modern double height storage and distribution building, associated van storage facility and site car parking, access and site works.
  • The development is promoted by TQL in response to a specific end user requirement, and the proposal is the first of its kind in the United Kingdom to incorporate the component of a van storage (decked) facility and associated launch bays. The proposal emphasises the importance of the ‘last mile’ in delivery services, providing full-time uniformed employees on pensionable pay and using liveried vehicles which are stored on site.
  • The development is part of the Queen’s Island regeneration close to Titanic Quarter.


  • The scheme aligns with many of the strategic ambitions for the city, including strengthening Belfast as the regional economic driver and creating the right conditions for attracting high quality inward investment and jobs.
  • The proposed development comprises 85,192 sq ft distribution warehouse, including 7,297 sq ft ancillary office accommodation, and associated van storage facility accommodating 479 spaces loading bays and service areas.
  • Employment floorspace is recognised by the council within its Growth Strategy of the Local Development Plan 2020 – 2035, with a target to provide almost 6 million sq ft over the next 15 years.
  • The project was delivered by a cross service team, incorporating our Planning and Strategic Communications teams.
  • Site area: 4.42 ha
  • Floorspace: 92,489 sq ft
