Cochrane welcomes restoration of Harland and Wolff drawing offices

Alliance East Belfast MLA Judith Cochrane has welcomed the £5million grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund programme that will restore the Harland and Wolff headquarters building and drawing offices in the Titanic Quarter. The Grade B+ listed building will be turned into a boutique hotel which will create 109 jobs.

Judith Cochrane MLA said: “It is great news that a key part of our shipbuilding heritage will be restored with this grant. I hope this new hotel will become another place for tourists to see part of the Titanic’s history.

“The new jobs created by this hotel will be a big boost to the local economy.

“This is the latest in a number of recent encouraging signs for our economy, following major job announcements by Bombardier and Stream Global Services in East Belfast.”
