Developers have submitted a planning application for a major office project in Belfast costing £65m.

Known as One Bankmore Square, the project would be at the Movie House cinema site on Dublin Road.

Taking two years to complete, it would provide Grade A office space for 3,000 workers.

The Richland Group, which is behind the project, believes the planning application can be "determined promptly" by Belfast City Council.

It has already held a public consultation process.

'Quantum leap'

Chief executive Gary McCausland said: "One Bankmore Square is a quantum leap for Belfast's office market.

"It brings world-class Grade A office accommodation to the heart of the city in a single-phase development."

The project would support nearly 600 construction job and has been described as the most significant office scheme in the city in almost a decade.

The cinema remains open in the meantime.
