Castle Court now fully let


THE CastleCourt Shopping Centre in Belfast is fully let for the first time since it was completed six years ago. The final outlet to be let was a 2,600 sq ft unit, rented by Northern Ireland Electricity Retail for use as a specialist television, audio, and computer store.

CastleCourt, which contains 73 units, was bought by the British property company, MEPC, in June 1994 for £72.5 million. Earlier this year, the Northern Ireland Audit Office complained that no arrangement had been made to claw back any of the £10 million urban renewal grant paid to the developers, Laing, before the centre changed hands.
