New images of a £68 million project to build hundreds of flats and a public promenade at an Aberdeen quarry site have been unveiled.
Toronto-based developer Carttera is preparing to submit a planning application for 299 private rented flats, a residents’ gym, 332 parking spaces and a public walkway with viewpoints over the historic Rubislaw Quarry site that gave the Granite City its name.
Included in the proposals is a heritage bistro, which will be host to an exhibition on the history of the quarry.
Jim Tadeson, the founder of Carttera, said: “There are many benefits to Aberdeen, from providing much-needed new rental housing, to opening up the quarry to the public for viewing along our quarry walk, to our heritage bistro and exhibits showcasing the history of the quarry and granite.
“The design was inspired by the famous Three Sisters of Glencoe, and is based on stacks of large granite blocks.”
