Abstract

This is a published article in the regional professional journal for the Royal Society of Ulster Architects. It details recent local government sponsored initiatives to support independent traders with regeneration efforts in a neglected area of Belfast city centre. The area, rebranded Smithfield and Union in 2011 following a joint effort between local business organisations, Belfast City Centre Management, Belfast City Council and the Northern Ireland Department of Social Development, working with consultants from the University of Ulster. The ReStore Project, takes precedents from the United States to implement a joint public-private initiative that uses short to medium term funding, targetted toward physical storefront improvements and graphic displays to improve the overall aesthetics of derelict properties and existing businesses, as a means to bolster confidence with investors and businesses.
