Derry City is located approximately 70 miles North West of Belfast and 147 miles from Dublin. The nearest major towns are Letterkenny (22 miles), Coleraine (30 miles) and Omagh (34 miles), with Derry representing the main regional City in the area.
As the regional capital of the North West, Derry offers investors a diverse business, social, cultural and leisure environment. Derry City is Northern Ireland's second largest population centre outside the Greater Belfast area, boasting a City Region of approx. 400,000. The City benefits from excellent transport links with the City of Derry Airport located 7 miles east of the City, with hourly train services to Belfast from the Waterside Railway station.
The city benefits from excellent infrastructure with the A6 link towards Belfast and the M2, and the A5 link towards Strabane and Omagh. Both of these major road networks are in the process of being substantially upgraded.
The subject land occupies a highly prominent location in Newbuildings, with dual frontage onto both the main A5 Victoria Road and Woodside Road. Newbuildings is located on the east bank of the river Foyle, approx. 3 miles south of Derry City. It is a popular residential location, given its rural setting and proximity to the City together with its attractive views across the River Foyle to east Donegal.
