Aberdeen student housing plan to be submitted
Crucible Developments have revealed their intent to file a planning application later this month for a Michael Laird Architects designed student housing scheme comprising 221 student rooms on the site of a redundant garage on Willowbank Road, Aberdeen.

Incorporating a café, games room and communal space arranged around a courtyard garden and parking space the scheme follows an ongoing trend of residential expansion in the area.

In a design statement the architects noted: “The development will help to complete the streetscape of the junction at Willowbank Road and Hardgate, while also addressing issues relating to the site’s integration to existing housing on Union Glen to the north.

“High quality architecture will create a suitable focal point for this site, highly visible as it is, sitting on this long, sweeping corner.”

A planning application is expected imminently with work set to get underway next year.
