City North takes a major step forward

Goodman says City North could accommodate 1,000 workers
Goodman says City North could accommodate 1,000 workers

The first phase of work to create a thriving new business community has been completed in Dyce, Aberdeen.

Developer Goodman has demolished a disused multi-storey car park and former health club after submitting plans to Aberdeen City Council for more than 100,000 square feet of new office accommodation.

It is expected that as many as 1,000 jobs could be accommodated at the development, City North, where it is hoped construction can start later this year.

A decision on detailed planning permission is expected in the next few weeks.

It would be the biggest speculative building project in Aberdeen outside of the city centre, providing three new office buildings of 25,800sq ft, 30,800sq ft and 45,600sq ft.

For the past three months, demolition experts have been clearing the site as part of the redevelopment of 30 acres that were once home to BP’s North Sea operations centre.

Niall McGilp, regional development director for Goodman in Scotland, said: “We’re pleased to have completed the first phase of work at City North and are hoping that we’ll soon be able to begin construction for this landmark development.

“We’ve been working closely with Aberdeen City Council to produce a bold plan which will transform a former blot on the landscape, while also bringing new jobs to the area.

“The development will provide significant opportunities for expanding firms, with the three buildings able to accommodate up to 1,000 people.”

Goodman’s regeneration work in the area has already delivered 220,000sq ft of office space for BP, which moved into its current building at Dyce in 2008.
