Breaking new ground as development continues at Enterprise Campus site
Fri, June 02, 2017
The site of the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus in Coleraine has taken on a new look this week.
Branded hoarding along the land at the Portstewart Road marks the initial steps in the first development of its kind in Northern Ireland. The installation is a clear visual marker of the site's future use, signifying the region’s compelling offer to the digital sector. The site will be co-located by the University of Ulster and will utilise the Project Kelvin landing station, which will provide the fastest connection point between Europe and North America.
The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey, said: "The Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus presents a significant economic opportunity for our Borough, and I am delighted to see these first signs of the site's transformation. The development marks an exciting new era for our Borough. Our anchor tenant, 5Nines is bringing a multi-million pound, global data centre to the zone. This vital infrastructure is a key part of Atlantic Link’s offer, unique to Coleraine, and the first of its kind in Northern Ireland. Their presence will act as a catalyst for further investment, bringing increased employment opportunities in the growing digital sector. We are looking forward to reaping the benefits of being at the forefront of this growth."
The Enterprise Campus will be located close to the River Bann, Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council offices, and the Ulster University. Aimed at businesses with a digital output, it offers enhanced capital allowances for its tenants. These benefits set it apart from other developments, putting Coleraine, and the wider Causeway Coast and Glens Borough, in an unrivalled position as Northern Ireland’s first Enterprise Zone.
