Mixed-use block to activate Peterculter gap-site

Mixed-use plans for a former paper mill in Peterculter, Aberdeen, could deliver 16 apartments and one shop.

0.37 acres at 244 North Deeside Road will provide an active street frontage of ground-floor retail within a single building articulated as five distinct blocks through pitched and flat roofs with recessed balconies.

In a design statement Wellwood Leslie Architects wrote: "While small in scale, the proposed development presents the opportunity for a mixed retail and residential development in a sustainable, marketable and deliverable location. It is a brownfield site and a windfall housing site, which can make a small but meaningful contribution to the Aberdeen housing land supply that can be delivered in the short term."

A ground floor of smooth ashlar granite complements aluminium panels used on the upper floors as well as the roof.
