Northern Ireland's improving hospitality sector looks set for another boost in the shape of a new 84-bedroom 'boutique' development in Belfast.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that the four-star hotel will employ 75 people and moved a step closer to being green-lighted this week.
The development will be based at the old Harland & Wolff headquarters and Drawing Offices, and it's understood could be worth around £27 million.
The report added that as many as 250 additional jobs could also be created through the hotel's construction, while it's also understood there are at least three other applications under way for similar developments in the area.
The Titanic Quarter has already had planning permission approved for a 111-bedroom hotel.
Currently, the area only has one hotel: a Premier Inn.
The Belfast Telegraph reports that Harcourt Developments - which operates the Redcastle and Lough Eske resorts - could be involved in the new project.
