Tech firm Kainos will take on a massive proposed office scheme in Belfast for its new headquarters, it has emerged.
The firm, which has 12 global offices but currently has its base off University Street, is taking on a planned 250,000 office building at the site of the Dublin Road Movie House cinema.
It's understood the company is paying £7m for the site.
Planning permission has already been awarded for the development but it's understood Kainos will submit a revised scheme.
Brendan Mooney, Kainos chief executive, said: “Our people remain central to everything we do and we want to ensure that our staff work in the best environment possible, and Bankmore Square allows us the opportunity to create a superb, modern and innovative office for our people.
“As well as the additional capacity that the office will bring, this investment, and the location of our new HQ, signals our commitment to retaining and attracting the best staff. We remain focused on providing exceptional careers and working conditions for all at Kainos and hope to close this transaction soon.”
Kainos plans to move into Bankmore Square in spring 2021.
