Inverness hotel drives creation of new ‘urban street’

A parking deck in Inverness city centre has been earmarked for a £20m, 210-bed hotel following the presentation of indicative plans at an initial public exhibition.

Proposals brought forward by CRGP on behalf of SRP Investments would see the double-decker car park demolished to make way for a hotel-led scheme; which would also incorporate ground floor retail and a new bus/taxi lane.

CRGP director Bryan McFadzean, told The Press and Journal: “I think the urban street into the heart of the city is key to this development. The opportunity to put a new street in the city centre is very rare and a big opportunity.

“The production of a new urban street in the heart of the station quarter will help put pedestrians and retail back on the streets.”

Rising to six storeys with a smaller 30-place car park to the rear the proposed solution could break ground later this year with a fair wind.

Great redevelopment site. Drawings are fairly bland. Lack individuality and any distinctive or interesting features.

Imagine one day Google start charging high for using their Maps. 'Journalism' will die immediately.
