Stephen Surphlis, Managing Director of MRP said: "The Vantage is a real show of confidence in the local economy following the disruption caused by coronavirus. We are excited to be bringing to the market a building that offers tenants a truly next generation working environment. Born for 21st century industry, the building's city centre positioning and unrivalled transport connections offer tenants an enviable location at the centre of all that Belfast has to offer. The excellent natural light combined with attractive open ceilings creates a superb environment where employees can collaborate, be inspired, be comfortable, thrive and grow. Conscious that more people than ever before will be connecting with colleagues virtually, the building will also be certified for the highest level of internet connectivity."
