Planners nod through 374 Aberdeen student flats
March 8 2017374-bed student housing development on the city’s John Street, eliminating a prominent brownfield plot.
Fletcher Joseph Architects have led design work for the scheme on behalf of George Downing Construction with a view to making a start on-site in the coming months, with students moving in by summer 2018.
In a statement the architects said: “Once complete the building will offer active frontage, linking the city centre streets with the Woolmanhill area, and feature a landmark corner block, which is to act as a visible bookend to John Street. The development’s u-shape footprint offers amenity at the heart of the scheme, channelling building occupants around internal and external social areas.
“The proposals have also been improved, following dialogue with Aberdeen City Council, in order to offer better daylighting to both future students and neighbouring properties.”
The U-shaped block will frame a communal courtyard and will be clad in grey brick, aluminium panels and ceramic tiles.
