Ortus Property Services acquire contract to lease St Comgall’s
St Comgall’s, located on the Falls Road is being managed by local property agents Ortus Property Services.
The building has gone through a £7 million regeneration project which was completed in June 2022. The project has restored this Grade B1 listed, a former school building to create a multi-use community facility, on behalf of Falls Community Council.
This project is designed to promote economic, educational, social and cultural benefits for the people who live and work in the local area and to promote good relations between communities through the provision of a multi-use business and exhibition centre. The new facility includes a multi-purpose function/conference hall, opening out onto a restored central courtyard, exhibition space, a permanent visitor attraction, Grade A office accommodation and a café and information point.
Ortus Property Services will be responsible for securing occupiers for the high-end office space with the total office space ranging from 500 to 8480 sq ft.
This recent collaboration with Falls Community Council by the West-Belfast based social enterprise will encourage job creation, employment, and investment in the area.
Ortus Property Services, owns several established properties in Belfast including Twin Spires Complex, Boucher Business Studios, Dairy Farm Shopping Centre, City View Business Park and Westlink Enterprise Centre.
The current properties combined provide business space to over 180 tenants and this new partnership is set to increase that figure.
The facility will be managed by Ortus Property Services, which makes up part of the Ortus Group, who acquired the contract to lease St Comgall’s this year.
Property Development Executive at Ortus, Noel Rooney, commented: “We are delighted to be working alongside Falls Community Council – The work done on the building to date has been first class and it is exciting times for the lower Falls community. Our aim is to provide high end office space with excellent opportunities to grow. We believe with the location and the state-of-the-art facilities, that St Comgalls will be a great success. We are looking forward to attracting occupiers from a range of different professions.”
This recent work ads great value to Ortus property portfolio, which continues to grow. The partnership will assist the growth of small/medium size businesses offering state of the art facilities in an easily accessible location minutes from M1 motorway and the city centre.
Due to its location the property benefits from excellent transport links being only approximately 0.5 miles from the M1 motorway providing convenient access to the rest of the province and airports/ports.
Gerry McConville, Director of Fall Community Council, added: We approached The Ortus Group to let the business premises as they are well known in the local area as commercial property experts. Our relationship with Ortus Property Services has been excellent and we’re delighted with how the project has gone to date. The premises will be a fantastic resource to the local community and beyond.
