Aberdeen office rush boosts Harbour business district
January 7 2014submitted plans to transform a former fish processing factory on Aberdeen’s North Esplanade West into office accommodation as part of ongoing efforts to transform the industrial district into an extension of the city centre.
This would see the existing factory structure retained with the addition of a two storey rooftop extension, adjacent to a C-listed former caretakers house.
In their design statement architects Cumming and Co said: “The most prominent corner of the building has been given an element of design by the introduction of a corner tower extension to the existing building which is mostly glazed.
“The existing building is proposed to be clad in granite to echo the materials of the adjacent GDF Suez building while also being more sympathetic with the neighbouring granite warehouse, the granite cladding will be continued along as a base course to the ground floor along both street elevations.”
Occupying a riverfront plot within the North Dee Business District, an area identified as suitable for office accommodation, the scheme is one of a number of commercial projects in the area by the same developer.
