Accommodation Earmarked for New UA92 University
17th Jul 2018
Work is underway on a new student accommodation development in Aberdeen that will result in the construction of 222 beds.
The £16 million development will be located on the former McConechy's Garage, situated on the corner of Willowbank Road and Hardgate and will accommodate students from Robert Gordon University and the University of Aberdeen.
Planning permission was granted last year and will be delivered by Carlisle based Northern Developments.
The site will benefit from good public transport links and its proximity to the city centre.
Commercial manager for Northern Developments, Eddie Ward, said of the scheme: "We are very pleased to have started work on the Willowbank Road site and look forward to delivering this exciting development.
"It will meet the demands of modern student living in every aspect and will be very appealing to the millennial generation who quite rightly expect high standards and the latest technology to suit their technological and educational needs."
The Aberdeen based sub-contractor Andrew Cowie Ltd has now started ground works on the site, with the project expected to be complete in time for the start of the 2018 academic year.
