I definitely agree there is an unprecedented amount of activity in Belfast! Never known a time of such a boom in activity in all my time living here! I was thinking more of specific masterplans that are drawn up for various sections of the city centre that really don't go anywhere, only to resurface a few years later for sale or with a new masterplan. As a result of the inactivity, we end up with plots of wasted land, some of which have been sitting empty for over 20 years.^^ I disagree. From what I have been gathering through following this forum lately, Belfast has a lot (really, A LOT) going on at the moment. Yes, it is the capital of NI and all, but compared to many other British (not to mention foreign) cities of larger populations (again, not to mention same-sized ones), Belfast is doing really well regarding the city's growth and development.
I think you should be happy and proud of what your city is achieving. It used to be known for its poverty and danger, whilst now the city centre is booming with more and more residents (a lot of whom are students), companies moving in (almost the whole waterfront) and tourists, in great part thanks to the Titnanic Quarter.
If you take a look at other UK sub-forums you'll see that things aren't just any better almost anywhere else, but in fact quite a lot worse!
Belfast is rocking it mate :cheers:
This ^^I agree with you both in that some developers aren't delivering their projects - for whatever reason that is. But a lot of things have been accomplished, too, which is what really matters. Not everything will happen at once in a mideium-sized city such as Belfast simply because there isn't the market for it. However, the city has evolved a lot and that is something you should all be proud of.
