Craiginches Prison redevelopment work begins
Sanctuary have begun work to redevelop the site of Aberdeen’s Craiginches Prison to form 124 new properties to be made available to key workers.

The £21m development of 18 affordable houses and 106 flats is being delivered by Robertson and Halliday Fraser Munro and will be targeted at teachers, hospital workers and others at mid-market rents.

Peter Martin, Sanctuary Group’s director of development, said: “Our new homes will become an integral part of Torry and provide wider benefits to the community. On top of the employment and training opportunities available on site, Aberdeen City Council has received more than £430,000 for local benefits including community and sports facilities, a car club and improvements to Walker Road Primary School.”

The new homes are set to be handed over by March 2018.

Nice. Sit on your balcony and watch the queue of trucks.
