Queen’s Square takes centre stage

City Centre Masterplan proposals for a new urban quarter in Aberdeen have been shared with major UK and international investors.

The £150 million Queen’s Square scheme was one of three pitched at Scotland House – the Scottish Government’s headquarters in London – at an event hosted by Scottish Finance Secretary Derek Mackay MSP.

Agencies involved were the Scottish Development International, the Scottish Cities Alliance, and the Scottish Property Federation.

Chief Officer for City Growth at Aberdeen City Council, Richard Sweetnam, presented the vision for the redeveloped Queen Street area.

He said: “Queen’s Square offers an excellent opportunity for the right investor – with a residential-led mixed use urban quarter in the heart of Aberdeen, the project has a GDV of £150 million and sits next to the new Marischal Square development which brought in £107million to Aberdeen’s economy.

“Events such as this, working with our partners in the Scottish Cities Alliance along with Scottish Development International, offer a fantastic opportunity to showcase the huge potential of Aberdeen.”
