Trump unveils plans for next phase of Menie development
March 18 2015
Announcing the ‘incredible’ plans Trump promised further applications for additional leisure facilities and housing on the coastal site later in the year.
Robert Collier, chief executive of Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce, said: “On top of the championship links course, five-star accommodation and a new clubhouse opening in May, the plans for a second course, banqueting facilities, infrastructure and a refreshed master plan are confirmation that investment in the site continues to build a valuable asset for the region.”
Trump halted further development work at Menie in 2013 citing fears that an offshore windfarm could blight views but the development is now back in full swing after lead developer Vattenfall announced it was no longer able to finance the project.
Previous phases of development announced for the controversial course include a Covell Matthews designed clubhouse and Acanthus DF penned hotel. The estate has been master planned by Gareth Hoskins Architects.
