Grandhome is a planned mixed-use community situated in Bridge of Don in the northwest of Aberdeen that aims to set new, exemplary standards for urban development in Scotland.
It is the only proposal in the north-east adopted by the Scottish Government’s Scottish Sustainable Communities Initiative.
The design of the new community from The Grandhome Trust will be entirely neighbourhood-based, meaning that homes will be within walking distance of a range of amenities, including shops, schools and community facilities. All day-to-day needs will be met within a 5-7 minute walk and the connected street pattern means pedestrians and cyclists will be able to freely move without taking circuitous routes. At the heart of the community will be the vibrant town centre, which will have a wide range of offices, shops and cafés designed to serve the wider Bridge of Don area.
Over the long term, Grandhome will include:
Grandhome’s first phase will include around 600 homes along with parks, some retail and community space, together forming part of the settlement’s first neighbourhood. At its centre will be Davidston Hall, a community building designed by award winning Scottish practice Reiach and Hall, who won an architectural competition for the site.
Construction on initial infrastructure is due to commence in late 2015, with residential development to follow shortly after.
