Aberdeen Market redevelopment reaches for the skies

Global real estate investor Patrizia has submitted a proposal of application notice to build an office led mixed-use development including shops, cafes and a bar on the site of a former BHS store and indoor market in Aberdeen.

Consultations have already begun for the Market Street site with the aim of sweeping away the current structures and reaching skyward with a new granite and glass tower comprising 120,000sq/ft of office space with a mix of leisure uses on its lower floors as well as a penthouse restaurant offering panoramic views across the city and harbour.

Under the proposals, developed by Halliday Fraser Munro, the existing Market Street entrance will be expanded to incorporate outdoor seating and a taxi rank with the aim of transforming an area of dilapidation into a bustling commercial hub.

In doing so it is hoped to turn the current ‘introverted’ structures inside out, fully engaging with surrounding streets and improving pedestrian connectivity.

To help accomplish this new shopfronts would line The Green and Market Street itself, extending efforts to revitalise the Union Street corridor, with the overall built footprint reduced to open up space for farmers markets, concerts and events.
