Unite wins planning for £20m Aberdeen student digs

Unite Group has won planning permission for a £20m student halls project in Aberdeen that will provide a home for 399 students.

The 120,000 sq ft scheme will involve the refurbishment of a derelist, listed school, which will house 16% of the bedrooms, with the remaining rooms built in an adjacent six-storey new build block.

It is expected to be complete in time for the 2016-17 academic year.

Richard Simpson, managing director of property for Unite Students, said: “We are very pleased to have received planning consent for this site as our development pipeline continues to progress well. This is our fifth site in Aberdeen, where we already provide a home for over 1,300 students.”
