Dandara to create 337 student rooms in Triple Kirks plan B
August 11 2015rethink by developer Dandara.
The about turn has seen Halliday Fraser Munro retained as architect to redraw its designs by dividing the massing into four separate blocks, terminating with projecting red brick fins and a set-back metal clad upper level.
Gavin Wyley, managing director of Dandara in Aberdeen, said: "Our focus is on securing the future of the former Triple Kirks site, bringing new generations of city centre residents into Aberdeen by creating of the city's premier student accommodation.
“Demand for high quality live/study accommodation in Aberdeen is far outstripped by supply - we hope to address some of that imbalance through the regeneration of the site."
At ground level space will be provided for a coffee shop and area of external seating overlooking Schoolhill, with shared terraces also provided for the use of students.
