Developer Inhabit has followed up its outline planning consent with a detailed planning application to redevelop the landmark Broadford Works site in Aberdeen city centre.

The former textile factory will be transformed into a 54,000-square metre development of 460 high-quality homes, as well as accommodation for 430 students, all set in a landscaped environment.

The urban village will also include office floor space, shops, restaurants and cafés for those living, working and socialising in the heart of the ‘Granite City’.

The development has been designed to complement the council’s city centre masterplan, the regeneration blueprint for the city launched in June 2015, according to the developer. The site sits on the edge of the area and includes a number of listed buildings, some of which face possible demolition.

The Broadford Works site was once home to the largest collection of category A-listed buildings at risk in Scotland.
