A total of 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, Urban Realm reports.

A design statement submitted by Wellwood Leslie Architects reads: “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.”
