Hotel conversion back on the cards for defunct Aberdeen department store
November 14 2014Aberdeen’s former Esslemont and Macintosh department store is back on the cards following submission of fresh proposals for a 98 bedroom hotel by local developer Castlecall.
Drawn up by Halliday Fraser Munro the scheme will see a concrete barnacle clamped to the building’s Broad Street frontage removed to be replaced by a full height fritted glass sheath.
An existing link bridge connecting two adjoining buildings will also be replaced with a triple deck glazed connection with a street level restaurant facing Union Street.
The scheme neighbours the planned Marischal Square development, also by Halliday Fraser Munro.
