Homes and gallery to take place of former Inverness College
March 21 2017
Anna Tozer, strategic disposals manager at the Scottish Futures Trust, commented: “We’ve secured a very positive outcome for this site which ensures much-needed retirement homes will be built. Securing the architecturally significant Inverness Royal Academy building for the local community to use and enjoy as an art facility is a real bonus, helping safeguard its future.”
John Hill, development director at property consultancy Lambert Smith Hampton added: “This is an excellent example of how private developers and public bodies can team up to provide innovative funding solutions that deliver private and social housing, while ensuring that the listed buildings remain in beneficial use. The scheme designed by McCarthy & Stone delivers a quality new build development that is sensitive to the setting of the listed buildings and surrounding neighbourhood.”
The listed Inverness Royal Academy building will be retained for conversion to a studio and art gallery by Wasps Studios.
