Laganside - before and after
Laganside - before and after
Before and after photographs - part of a display giving details of the effect of the Laganside Corporation. Formed in 1889 to redevelop both banks of the River Lagan, the corporation, used government funds to attract private investment and some 1 billion has been invested. When the corporation was formed, the urban environment was dominated by derelict buildings and poor quality housing. The river itself was polluted and foul smelling at low water. Now, streets and buildings which were scenes of neglect and dereliction have been refurbished and new buildings and new public areas have been developed. See: LinkExternal link
