Queen Street will be a residential-led mixed-use urban quarter in the historic heart of central Aberdeen. It is adjacent to the new (£107 million) Marischal Square development.

The initial land assembly phases of the project are underway with development expected to start in 2020/21. This may include a hotel, 350 apartments and 9,000 sq m of leisure and retail development. Estimated construction cost of these initial phases is £50 million.

Queen Street will deliver a new urban quarter alongside existing cultural facilities and will create a vibrant day and evening neighbourhood.

The project is central to the city living approach that is being promoted to re-energise the core of the city and is complemented by major investment in public realm, infrastructure and iconic parks and squares.

Aberdeen’s economy is diversifying quickly, and the city was recently recognised as one of the best places in the UK to start a new business as well as the best place to live and work in Scotland (2019). More than £10 billion of public and private infrastructure investment is due to be delivered before 2030.

Aberdeen is one of the world’s top five energy cities, home to a quarter of Scotland’s top 100 companies. GVA sits at £18,235 million– 12.8% of the Scottish total (2018).

Queen Street is being promoted by Aberdeen City Council in association with several public sector stakeholders, including the Scottish Government.
