Keppie pen Aberdeen ‘Pinnacle’
October 26 2011
Dubbed The Pinnacle Aberdeen, it would rise between Shiprow and the Adelphi and is being touted as headquarters office space for a global organisation.
Designed by Keppie it incorporates a five storey granite podium element below a glass clad tower element.
Mary Martin, director of the Aberdeen Douglas Hotel, said: “We are confident that there is nothing else like The Pinnacle Aberdeen in terms of space, light and – most of all – its location, just a few minutes’ walk from the train and bus stations and Union Street and Union Square. It also sits on the edge of the Merchant Quarter, with its quirky art cafes, bars and restaurants.
“When we bought the hotel six years ago we always knew there was potential for development when the time was right. Its great location and Aberdeen’s excellent economy put us in a very strong position.”
A rapid turnaround for the project is being striven for with 2013 being quoted as the scheduled completion date.
