Plans to create a tnew business community in Dyce have been approved by Aberdeen City Council.
The City North development from the UK’s leading business park developer, Goodman, will create 100,000 sq ft of new office accommodation with the capacity for up to 1000 jobs.
The development will be the biggest build outside of Aberdeen city centre and provide three new office buildings ranging in size from 25,800 sq ft, 30,800 sq ft, and 45,600 sq ft.
For the last three months, demolition experts have been clearing the site, which included a large derelict multi-storey car park. The work currently underway marks the final stage of the redevelopment of the 30 acre site, which was formerly BP’s North Sea operations centre.
Niall McGilp, regional development director for Goodman in Scotland, said: “With planning permission now secured we can now turn our attention to delivering this exciting new project.”
Working in conjunction with BP, Goodman’s regeneration project has already delivered 220,000 sq ft of office space for BP’s new award winning North Sea Headquarters.
Once completed, the new development will enjoy links to the nearby Aberdeen International Airport, Dyce Railway Station and the planned Aberdeen Western Peripheral Road.
Andrew Smith, from Ryden, who, with newly appointed CBRE, are joint property agents on the project, said: “On completion, City North will be one of the stand-out choices for companies in the North East looking to relocate.
Construction is due to begin on site later this year.
