What to look for in a retail unit?
You can’t afford not to be fastidious about the way you go about finding your retail unit – the property you commit to needs to be reliable and practical.
As the anchor of Northern Ireland’s industry and the connecting port city to Liverpool, Belfast remains a key commerce destination in Northern Europe. It is famed for its historic docks, which have provided the foundations for its shipbuilding, linen production and trade business. A number of regeneration projects in the city, such as Victoria Square, Cathedral Quarter and the Odyssey complex have reinvigorated excitement in the city, making it an attractive, buzzing place to base a business.
