Grandhome residents to move in by Christmas
Father Christmas has a new set of addresses to add to his route this year as almost 100 people in Aberdeen’s newest community get ready to celebrate their first Christmas at Grandhome.
On Christmas morning 80 households, including families, newlywed couples and downsizers, will be unwrapping presents at the Bridge of Don development, which is being built by the Grandhome Trust – in partnership with AJC Homes, CALA Homes and Dandara Homes.
Bruce Smith, a trustee of the Grandhome Trust, said: “Grandhome is quickly becoming a bustling community and it’s incredibly exciting to see everyone who lives here get ready to celebrate their first Christmas in their new homes.
“Christmas is just one of the many annual occasions that the community here will be celebrating and into next year we hope to add to this by launching a calendar of new community events for everyone to enjoy, including those living within the development and surrounding areas.
“We hope everyone has a wonderful festive season in Grandhome and look forward to the celebrations.”
Once complete, the first neighbourhood in Grandhome will have approximately 650 homes and will be situated close to parks and community spaces.
The long-term aim is to build 7,000 new homes which will be within walking distance of a range of amenities. All day-to-day needs will be met within a 5-7-minute walk and the connected street pattern means pedestrians and cyclists will be able to freely move without taking circuitous routes.
