Knight Property Group has submitted plans to Aberdeen City Council, to convert the upper floors of City Point, a vacant Aberdeen office building into residential use.
The Aberdeen firm aims to deliver 26 one-bedroom affordable apartments on the upper floors of the four-storey Citypoint building on Chapel Street, with a retail unit included on the ground floor.
Environment credentials feature highly with the proposed redevelopment, with the roof being covered with around new photovoltaic 100 250-watt solar panels. New aluminium-clad timber high performance windows would be installed throughout, along with protective window barriers and cladding. The development allows for a spacious 26-cycle store and ten car parking spaces.
The development is a stone’s throw from Union Street and the heart of Aberdeen city centre, providing residents with excellent access to public transport links and all the city centre retail and leisure amenities.
Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group said:
“Our proposals would breathe life into a vacant building and help revitalise the area. City Point represents a highly sustainable location for the proposed development of much-needed affordable housing, all within easy reach of Aberdeen city centre. Future residents would be able to access a range of local transport links, shops, services, and employment opportunities.”
