Aberdeen’s Broadford Works secures planning consent

Sheppard Robson Architects have secured planning consent for 460 private rented sector homes alongside 430 student rooms on the site of a disused textile factory which has lain vacant since 2004.

Collectively housing the largest number of grade A listed buildings in Scotland the development at Broadford Works will weave together a mix of new build elements around retained mills, aided through use of locally sourced granite with red and white brick.

Stacey Phillips, associate partner at Sheppard Robson commented: "Broadford Works will add high-quality new homes to Aberdeen City Centre that will allow people to live and work locally whilst bringing life back to a long-disused site with the aim of creating a new urban quarter reinvigorating the area.

"Our plans, whilst contemporary, are respectful both to the local environment and the heritage of the site, with the sense of the new and old being interwoven. This is an exciting project and an incredibly interesting site.

"We expect to see strong growth in Scotland's PRS sector and are delighted that the proposals have been met with such positivity and planning consent has been granted for one of the first large-scale developments of its kind."

Developed by Inhabit Broadford Works will also include a mix of office space, restaurants and cafes.

Shame it means demolishing a unique Grade 1 listed structure though...
