CALA Homes Submits New Plans for City Centre Apartments

CALA Homes (North), in conjunction with NHS Grampian, has submitted a fresh proposal for a development at May Baird Avenue, within the grounds of the former Royal Cornhill Hospital.

May Baird Avenue Phase 2 North of Scotland

Earlier this year, an application was submitted to Aberdeen City Council to transform the currently disused, surplus land into high quality one and two bedroom apartments. Since then, CALA has taken on board feedback from the community and other consultees to refine and update the plans.

The new proposal comprises 32 apartments, four less than previously proposed, with the vehicle access point relocated to ensure traffic does not enter the site via May Baird Avenue. The apartments are set further away from neighbouring buildings and a landscaping buffer is now in place between existing homes and the new properties. 

Mike Naysmith, Managing Director of CALA Homes (North), said: “We have carefully considered feedback from local people and other key stakeholders and have updated our plans accordingly. We believe that this development will bring much needed high quality apartments to the city centre, built to CALA’s very high specifications and standards.
 
“As well as enhancing and enriching the area, these plans will potentially allow the NHS to reinvest funds from the sale of the land into health services in Grampian. We look forward to the Council’s decision in due course.”
