CALA unveils plans for Aberdeen apartments

CALA Homes, in conjunction with NHS Grampian, has announced it has submitted a planning application to Aberdeen City Council for a 36-home development within the former Royal Cornhill Hospital grounds.

The application for the development at May Baird Avenue proposes one and two-bedroom apartments.

Ross Maclennan, land director at CALA Homes (North) said, “This development would replace currently disused surplus land with apartments created to CALA’s very high specifications and standards, which we believe would enhance and enrich the area, and potentially allow the NHS to reinvest funds from the sale of the land into health services in Grampian. We previously built apartments off May Baird Avenue which were completed in 2017 and these homes proved very popular with a variety of homebuyers, from downsizers to young professionals.

“We anticipate similar interest in this new development, should approval be granted. We look forward to working with the council to reach a positive decision in due course.”
