Aberdeen retirement home wins planning
Mccarthy & Stone have secured planning permission for 44 retirement apartments at Craigiebuckler, Aberdeen.

Located on the site of the former conference centre of the Hilton treetops Hotel the scheme will adopt a contemporary design amidst the predominantly residential neighbourhood and incorporate landscaped gardens, a communal roof terrace and sun room.

Designed by The Planning Bureau Ltd the scheme will be finished in a mixture of granite, white smooth render and timber-effect cladding.

Stephen Wiseman, Managing Director of McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, said: "Once complete, our scheme will significantly improve housing choices for older people in Aberdeen. From the outset our development has been sensitively designed to provide a prestigious, contemporary building that can be enjoyed by both residents and the community alike.

"We worked closely with the local community to form the plans and always ensure our developments bring benefits from being well designed and centrally located, close to local transport links, amenities and shops.  In turn this helps to sustain the local economy."

Site clearance is expected to commence this autumn.
