Banking on success: RBS moves to Marischal Square

The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) is the latest big business to take space at Marischal Square in Aberdeen.

RBS will move from its current home in the city’s West End later this summer.

Mark Gall, regional director for corporate and commercial banking for Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “This site provides the city with office space that reflects the needs of modern business.

“Relocating here ensures our corporate and commercial teams remain in the heart of the city centre and alongside some of the region’s key employers and organisations.”

The signing was welcomed by project partners Muse Developments, Aberdeen City Council and Aviva Investors.

Aberdeen City Council City Centre Masterplan lead councillor Marie Boulton said: “RBS is a significant endorsement of the role Marischal Square is playing by bringing jobs and investment back into the east end of the city centre.

“Marischal Square is one of the developments aimed at revitalising this area of Union Street as part of the City Centre Masterplan.”

RBS will join Aberdeen Journals, Mackie’s, All Bar One, Prezzo, Costa, Tony Macaroni and Marriott International on site.

Stephen Turner, Regional Director, Scotland, at Muse Developments, said: “The number of major businesses now buying into the ‘vision’ for Marischal Square is really encouraging.

“We are now looking at several hundred jobs being attracted back into this key area of the city and those numbers benefit not only the businesses operating on site but also those around Marischal Square itself.”
