  • Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has launched the development brief for the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus in Coleraine. The site, which spans 12 acres, is in a prominent position that fronts the Portstewart Road in Coleraine.

    “We are extremely proud to be the home of Northern Ireland’s first enterprise zone, which presents such a significant economic opportunity for our area. The development represents a new digital era for the Causeway Coast and Glens and the vital infrastructure will bring increased employment opportunities and showcase our area as a highly attractive business proposition”, commented Brenda Chivers, Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

    With development commencing back in 2017, anchor tenant 5NINES opens its first carrier-neutral data centre in Northern Ireland. The sectors that have been named as the most beneficial to the site are cybersecurity, big pharma, film and television, and life sciences.

    “The facility that 5NINES has established at the Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus offers the opportunity for the Northern Ireland economy to flourish in the future. Data-heavy sectors such as financial services, programming, film and television production, pharma, and many others will have access to our high-security, purpose-built facility to store, process, and distribute their data”, stated Paul Besley, General Manager at 5NINES.

    “The Atlantic Link Enterprise Campus is a fantastic opportunity to attract both indigenous and inward investors into the region to grow the local economy, and it will contribute significantly to the Council’s wider Creative Causeway and Digital Causeway strategy”, stated Lisa McAteer, Director at CBRE.
