The Queen Street project aims to deliver more than 300 new homes and incorporate a civic hub, cultural assets, enhanced heritage features and high-quality public realm.
The project’s estimated Gross Development Value is approximately £150 million, with development planned to take place in 2020-2026. It represents a pioneering approach to placemaking by Aberdeen City Council and its partners.
Reform of public sector services is a key principle of Queen Street’s regeneration. A Multi-Agency Transformation Management Group, co-ordinated by the Council, is exploring ways to redesign services around the community to help deliver the city’s refreshed Local Outcome Improvement Plan.
