Student development with 221 rooms approved in Aberdeen

Willowbank student accommodationPlanning officials have given the green light for a student accommodation development with 221 rooms in Aberdeen.

Crucible Alba will develop the Michael Laird Architects-designed facility on the site of McConechy’s Garage on Willowbank Road.

The building, which will have its main entrance on Willowbank Road, will have 44 flats across four storeys and will include a cafe, games facility and “breakout” room.

It will also have a courtyard garden and parking for 25 vehicles.

Michael Laird Architects said the design “offers a crisp modern aesthetic where the use of granite allows the building to sit seamlessly within Aberdeen’s cityscape”.

Work is set to get underway next year.
