The project was approved in December 2016. It will be the new home for 618 students when completed in 2019. The scheme is split between two sites on the north and south of Pittodrie Street and will be built in two phases. Manson have designed a scheme that reflects the surrounding character through carefully selected materials; granite, facing brick and gold coloured cladding in the courtyard.
The height, scale and massing of the proposal is sensitive to the adjacent buildings with features such as dormer windows and landscaped perimeter boundaries that ensure the proposal fits seamlessly into the existing street scene.
