Affordable homes planned for site of former Aberdeen hotel
Malcolm Allan Housebuilders has confirmed its plans for 89 new homes on the site of a former Aberdeen hotel.
The landmark Hilton Treetops on Springfield Road closed suddenly last February and was purchased by the developer.
In September 2020, one of the firm’s directors confirmed plans for the 6.75-acre site were at a “very early” stage, but could involve the demolition of the hotel. By the end of the year, the building had been demolished.
Now documents lodged with Aberdeen City Council detail the layout of the 89 new properties proposed for space once occupied by the hotel.
Working with Halliday Fraser Munro, the Kintore-based housebuilder has now revealed new images showing how the 6.75-acre plot of land could look in the future.
Under the plans, a mix of three, four and five-bedroom homes comprising detached and semidetached properties, and townhouses will be delivered with a green space in front of the homes, facing onto Springfield Road.
There is also to be a large block of flats to the west of the site, with one and two-bedroom options alongside two and three-bedroom penthouse flats.
And a block of 21 affordable units will be located in the west of the complex, including one and three-bedroom flats, to “meet the current affordable housing needs requirements within the city”.
