Victoria Square is a high end commercial, residential and leisure development in Belfast, Northern Ireland developed and built by Multi Development UK over 6 years. At approx 800,000 ft² (75,000m²) and costing £400m it is the biggest and one of the most expensive property developments ever undertaken in Northern Ireland. It opened on 6 March 2008. Its anchor tenant at nearly 200,000 ft² (18,581m²) is the largest House of Fraser that the retailer has opened in the UK.DesignA key element in the development is two covered, multi-level streets linked to the massive glass dome measuring 35 m in diameter. A public square covered entirely by the glass dome serves as the hub of the entire area. The ornate Jaffe Fountain, constructed in the 1870s by former Lord Mayor Otto Jaffe in memory of his father, has been restored to its original location in Victoria Square. Victoria Square is a neighbourhood consisting of 17 contextual different buildings. Pedestrian links to nearby business, nightlife and shopping streets on Laganside, Donegall Place, Royal Avenue and Ann Street. Victoria Square includes a wide variety of shops for males, females and children as well as a wonderful 80 ft viewing area. Victoria Square was developed by Multi Development UK Ltd in co-operation with T+T Design. The Architects are Building Design Partnership and T+T Design, the in house architects of Multi Corporation.SustainabilityIn employment terms, over 3,000 people were involved in the construction phase of Victoria Square, with a further 3,000 people gaining employment in the scheme through jobs in retail, security and the service industries. Environmentally, a large section of the roof has been covered in Sedum in a direct attempt to reduce the carbon footprint of Victoria Square. This material soaks up rainwater allowing it to evaporate naturally over time rather than overload draining systems.

  • The 24 hour car park in Victoria Square is brilliant. Not only is it always clean but it is very spacious. I really enjoy the House of Fraiser and the Apple Store in the centre. The Odeon cinema is great too, really enjoy those premiere seats! At the top of the dome you can expect a great view of Belfast. Would definitely recommend this shopping centre to anyone.
  • Great place for high end shopping and lots of food places to eat after you finished. Hi recommendation here is the observation deck great 360 degree view of the city
  • Very big with good stores, micheal kors, nice places to find a resrurant cosmos😍😍
  • Mall with all the usual chain outlets. Standard eating options with open and spacious atmosphere. Plus there's an upstairs gallery offering views of Belfast. Slightly obscured but worth a visit. Sometimes late evening dining in the gallery is a nice touch but need to book.
  • Lovely ground level seating area to have a rest after a busy day of walking around, great selection of shops with a cool top level view of the surrounding Belfast area. Clean and accessible, definitely a prime shipping location.
