Work to begin on £9m St Andrews hotel
September 16 2014£9m hotel and retail development in St Andrews, Fife, is to progress next month after Crucible (St Andrews) gave the green light to construction.
Designed by Michael Laird Architects the scheme will incorporate a 65 room Premier Inn hotel alongside an M&S Simply Food store on the site of a former abbatoir which will soon be demolished.
This will make way for a main hotel build clad in light brick with a dark ceramic entrance, designed to blend with an adjacent glazed and ceramic tile clad retail pavilion.
In a planning statement property consultants Ryden said: “The subject site consists of an unused, unsightly brownfield site which lies adjacent to residential properties and within a mixed use area of St Andrews. There is strong, well established planning policy support, at a local, regional and national level, for the redevelopment of brownfield sites within existing settlements. The proposals are sustainable and will make use of a very under-utilised site, located within a commercial area of St Andrews.”
