The Queen Street project is an ambitious residential-led vision for the civic quarter, which would incorporate more than 300 new homes along with key public services and high-quality public realm  

Planning, led by Aberdeen City Council, will focus on:

  • Placemaking – Completing the urban quarter/civic heart
  • Service demand – Public sector design opportunities
  • Added value – Culture/amenity/city centre living
  • Building demand – Securing historic assets/high quality new build


In the mid-19th Century, when Aberdeen was a thriving fishing port, Queen Street was a residential area. The poet Lord Byron lived there as a child. Queen Street had a hotel, a bookshop, and a photographer’s studio.
