Work on scheme by LDA Design due to start this summer
Work is finally to start on the redevelopment of Aberdeen’s Union Terrace Gardens more than 10 years after Brisac Gonzalez first won planning for an arts centre in the park.
The park has a long and toubled planning history, with that project replaced by an ambitious and expensive scheme designed by Diller Scofidio & Renfro - which was in turn ditched.
Finally LDA Design won a more modest contract in 2016 to give the gardens a £20m facelift. A proposal for three pavilions, a walkway from Union Street, landscaping and lighting, and the refurbishment of the Union Terrace arches won planning in 2017.
