Armagh I revealed the plans for this major redevelopment last week

Proposed development at Gillis Yard in Armagh

This is an exclusive first look at the proposed major re-development of Gillis Yard in Armagh City.

The photos reveal a series of units aimed at small businesses in an area in desperate need of redeveloping.

In recent times an Orthodontic Clinic has been built facing the Loughgall Road, however, these units will bring derelict land behind that new build back to life.

Gillis sits off the Loughgall Road, on the edge of the city, and largely hidden from the public eye.

And all in the shadow of St Patrick’s RC cathedral.

Developers have described the plans as an “attractive” and “exciting” project for the city.

It is one which could also bring a significant number of much-needed jobs as a result of a substantial investment.

Cathal Reilly, of Clarman Architects, told Armagh I the intention was to focus on an undeveloped area of Armagh city and bring it into productive use.

“We are really hoping to do some really good things with this site,” he said.

“This will be a very attractive development that will rejuvenate that area of the city, as well as contributing a lot of value.

“It’s a hugely exciting mixed-use development that will be geared towards bringing on board small businesses in the area.

“If all goes well and according to plan it would be our ambition to proceed with a planning application in the coming weeks.”
