Plans lodged to demolish Aberdeen warehouse for apartment block
Halliday Fraser Munro has submitted plans to demolish three warehouses in Aberdeen to make way for 33 apartments.
About this development:
- Authority:Aberdeen City
- Team:Halliday Fraser Munro (architect)
The plans call for the regeneration of Union Glen which is located near Union Street, Urban Realm reports.
Conceived as a contemporary buff brick block, the 5/6 store building would have a chosen solution incorporating bronze metal panels around the window openings with soldier courses referencing the established street datums.
In its design statement, Halliday Fraser Munro wrote: “The use of a natural stone, instead of a synthetic alternative which is apparent in neighbouring 20th Century buildings, will evoke a sense of quality and solidity which is so apparent in the granite buildings of Aberdeen. Blocks of colour at window openings and doors will give the building a unique identity and add textural interest to the elevation.”
Properties will have access to shared and private gardens, deck access balconies and an entrance courtyard.
