Aberdeen theatre redevelopment takes centre stage
May 3 2013
Designed by Keppie the £30m plan would see the A-listed Capitol Theatre thrust back into the limelight as set scenery for a multi-storey block containing around 70,000 sq/ft of office space, accessible by escalator through the restored art deco foyer.
Knight Property is working closely with Aberdeen City Council and Historic Scotland to retain ‘some’ of the internal features.
James Barrack, director of Knight Property Group said: “This is a significant development for us and it will see one of Aberdeen’s most historic and iconic buildings restored to its former glory. This will assist in the much needed regeneration of Union Street and in turn, bring further benefits for local retailers and suppliers in the surrounding areas.”
Work on the project could start ‘immediately’ once planning consent is obtained with completion pencilled in for December 2014.
