A public consultation exhibition on future plans for Aberdeen’s market building will be held today between noon and 8pm at the former BHS Store on Union Street.
Patrizia, formerly known as Rockspring, has been in discussions with Aberdeen City Council regarding several options for the building since the collapse of BHS.
They are now working on a planning application which will be submitted to the council for consideration.
Developers have promised new frontages for the building and a “mixed use” scheme involving shops, cafes, restaurants and offices.
Shaun Hose, director of Patrizia, said: “We’re looking forward to playing a key role in the revitalisation of this part of the Merchant Quarter and to having an open dialogue with the public about our vision for this key city centre site.
“Our ambitions aim to enhance the site creating a vibrant place, both during the day and at night, with the right blend of retail, leisure, cultural and office uses.
“So far, the stakeholders with whom we’ve engaged have been really positive. There is a shared desire to see a vast improvement to the building and surrounding public realm that will breathe new life into this part of the city centre.”
