Building work was completed in early 1997 and the building opened to the public on 17 January 1997 with a special concert, featuring the Ulster Orchestra, pianist Barry Douglas and flautist James Galway.
Belfast Waterfront was designed by local architects Robinson McIlwaine and built by contractors Gilbert Ash. The £32million contract was financed by Belfast City Council, with support from the government’s urban development grant and the European Regional Development Fund.
The 2016 extension is part of Belfast City Council's £150million Investment Programme aimed at supporting local businesses and creating employment. The ongoing 4,000m2 expansion project is jointly funded by Belfast City Council, Tourism Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund, under the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland, and administered by Tourism Northern Ireland. The extended facilities were designed by Todds Architects and built by McLaughlin and Harvey.
