Developer counters ‘Carbuncle’ tag with Aberdeen Beach restaurant plan
February 11 2015
Prepared by TCD Architects the design provides space for five commercial units along the esplanade, including a Hornblowers restaurant, with first-floor sea front terraces and floor to ceiling windows.
Terry Taylor from Rossnow Leisure commented: “The design is by award-winning architects and is designed to be modern and sit well in the surroundings.
“We’re well aware of the recent bad publicity surrounding some of the ‘carbuncles’ which have been built or are planned to be built in Aberdeen so we wanted a building which is forward-thinking that reflects the character and materials found at the beach.”
TCD director Steven Lawrence added: “We are designing this facility to provide a contemporary European-style beachfront atmosphere to help promote the north-east of Scotland and deliver an alternative dining experience.”
Work is expected to get underway later this year for completion by 2016.
