£150m ‘Blackdog ‘town centre’ master plan lodged
March 25 2016
Serving as a gateway development for the ‘Energetica corridor’ project, a 30 mile long strip of development stretching out to Peterhead, the development will include 600 homes, offices, industrial units, supermarket, hotel and cinema.
Subject to approval by Aberdeenshire Council the scheme could get underway by 2017.
Commenting on the development Steven McGarva of Ashfield Land said: “Its prime gateway location takes advantage of the new Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and will help to consolidate Aberdeenshire as one of the world’s major energy centres, complementing the Energetica Corridor strategy, while ensuring that key areas of diversification in food and drink, tourism and life science are also considered and catered for.”
A retail and leisure hub, with supporting business and industrial use, has been designed by Threesixty Architecture for Ashfield Land to the north whilst a residential section to the south has been designed by Optimised Environments (OPEN) and William Lippe Architects for Kirkwood Homes.
Optimised Environments are also serving as landscape consultants for the entire master plan.
