Situated close to the University of Aberdeen in an attractive historic residential district, the prominent corner location on one of Aberdeen’s main thoroughfares is suitable for a number of commercial uses or residential development.
The 1.28 acre site is located at the corner of Don Street and King Street, the main arterial route serving the area. This route provides rapid access south into Aberdeen city centre and north onto the A90 dual carriageway to Peterhead. The AWPR is easily reached providing access to all parts of the city.
The location is well-established with a number of commercial occupiers in the surrounding area alongside residential dwellings. The site is situated between King Street and Seaton Park with Aberdeen beach just a short distance to the east. Excellent public transport, shopping, health, sporting and social amenities are all available within close proximity.
The building on the site is a former OTC (Officers Training Corps) Centre and with a number of lock ups. The building offers 9,751 sq ft of space on the ground floor and 3,232 sq ft on the first floor and provides a mix of cellular and open plan training rooms and offices along with a large double height hall and kitchen within the north section. There are a number of male and female changing areas and toilets along with accessible toilets.
Chris Grinyer, managing partner at Shepherd in Aberdeen, said: “The site is identified within the Aberdeen Local Development Plan 2017 and is within an H1 Residential area. The policy for such areas states proposals for new residential development will be approved in principle, subject to a number of criteria.
“Non-residential uses may be permitted, providing they can be demonstrated they are complementary to residential use and will not cause conflict or any nuisance to the enjoyment of existing residential amenity. The site is located within a conservation area. Interested parties should make their own enquiries to the Planning Department of Aberdeen City Council in relation to their proposals.”
