Des Taggart, Property Director at Magherafelt-based Conway Group, has revealed that the opening of the new £8 Million Premier Inn Hotel in Bangor is the latest scheme in the company’s multi-million-pound development strategy.
“When the disused leisure centre site on Castle Park Avenue was put up for sale, we recognised that it was the perfect site to meet the need for new hotel accommodation,” said Des.
In addition to this 85-bedroom hotel, Conway Group has ambitious plans to develop several major schemes in Northern Ireland over the next five years.
Kevin McGurgan, Construction Director for Conway Group, explains: “We have a number of significant multi-million-pound projects in the pipeline. Within the Cathedral Quarter area of Belfast we plan to develop a landmark mixed-use scheme which includes Grade A offices, a new Hotel and luxury residential apartments. We are also working on three other major city centre sites in Belfast that will deliver high quality apartment schemes, and we will continue to support Whitbread’s ongoing expansion plans with further Premier Inn hotel developments.”
Conway Group will also expand its care home portfolio with two new healthcare schemes, one next to Altnagelvin Area Hospital and one beside Antrim Area Hospital and in Glengormley there are plans to create a new neighbourhood retail and apartment scheme.
