Plans lodged for almost 300 rented homes at old Aberdeen quarry site

The developer behind plans for 299 private rented flats and a public promenade at Aberdeen’s Rubislaw Quarry has submitted the application for planning.

Toronto-based developer Carttera also wants to deliver a gym, and a “heritage bistro” at disused the quarry, which will host a permanent exhibition on the history of the famous site which gave the Granite City its name.

The firm said the designs were inspired by the enormous blocks of granite which were hauled from the quarry for more than 200 years.

Jim Tadeson, the founder of Carttera, said: “There are many benefits to Aberdeen, from providing much-needed new rental housing, to opening up the quarry to the public for viewing along our quarry walk, to our heritage bistro and exhibits showcasing the history of the quarry and granite.

“The design was inspired by the famous Three Sisters of Glencoe, and is based on stacks of large granite blocks.”
