This week say the unveiling of a proposal to build a hotel reflecting the glories of the famous liner the Titanic. It is proposed as a signature project in the Titanic Quarter in Belfast’s former shipyard area. The previous proposal hit the rocks because no one would cough up the huge sums of public money it required. This project may have a better chance of plain sailing as it appears to have much more private sector backing. The design – reminiscent of a ship - is certainly striking.
