Revised Aberdeen student housing block put before planners
August 17 2016121 bed student housing block at George Street, Aberdeen, after an initial bid for 133 studios was denied planning permission.
For their revised scheme Yeoman McAllister Architects have reduced the block by a storey in height and introduced a green roof space whilst relocating plant internally in an effort to assuage concerns.
As before the scheme will replace a current service yard and industrial building with a block plan that aims to tie-in with the existing grain of the street.
In a statement the developer wrote: “McLaren has considered there reasons for refusal and the option to appeal to Scottish Ministers.
“McLaren has carefully considered the concerns raised by councillors and local residents and decided that with careful redesign that a new application should be submitted.”
A ‘contemporary loggia’ will provide a sheltered entrance space off George Street with extensive glazing helping to connect with the street.
