Plans have been submitted to Aberdeen City Council by developers Drum Property Group and partner EnQuest to demolish the long neglected and derelict Aberdeen Seafood Park in the harbour area and replace it with a high quality office development.
It is proposed the 120,000ft² net building, designed by Cooper Cromar, will become the new North Sea headquarters for EnQuest - the largest independent UK oil producer in the North Sea, and could ultimately provide Grade ‘A’ accommodation for a workforce of up to 800.
The proposed development will occupy a prime position on Palmerston Road and will be defined by a prominent glazed corner element marking the entrance to a spacious double height entrance foyer. A bank of lifts will transport staff directly from the podium level reception and entrance to the seven open plan office floors above.
Drum director Graeme Bone said: “The development would provide a purpose-built solution for EnQuest and support the company’s expansion. But, more generally, our proposals would also lead to the physical regeneration of a neglected and rundown area of the city and act as a catalyst in generating additional long-term economic activity for the harbour area and city in general.”
