'Remove & reclad' bid to repurpose Altens offices for housing
March 22 2021
Faro Capital has launched a public consultation into its plans for the residential-led redevelopment of a redundant office building at Wellington Circle, Altens, south of Aberdeen.
Quattro House has lain empty since 2016 with little likelihood of attracting tenants in the immediate future, sparking a push to find an alternative use for the building.
While the current site is designated for commercial and industrial use it neighbours existing housing, which has informed a 'remove and reclad' approach by architects Halliday Fraser Munro to replace the existing facade as part of the conversion to 90 apartments. As part of this work, the southern wing will be demolished to permit new-build apartments.
In consultation documents, Faro wrote: "The main building will be reused and repurposed for residential apartments including additional upper storeys which will provide residents with attractive views across the City. Through the retention of the existing building and courtyard, the proposed development will create quiet, private, south-facing amenity space for residents with good quality landscaping and areas of open space."
An online engagement event will take place on 30 March between 14:00 and 20:00 and can be pre-booked now. All feedback should be received no later than 13 April.
