Balmoral parks up

Balmoral Group has announced the official launch of its multi-million pound business park at the southern gateway to the city.

Balmoral Business Park, spanning 18 acres, is three miles south of Aberdeen city centre adjacent to the Loch of Loirston, and facing the A956, with the proposed Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route running within one mile of the development.

The Park has been designed to accommodate more than 135,000 sq ft of office space and is split into two phases. Balmoral has started work on a speculative three-storey office development of 40,550 sq ft in phase 1 which it says is attracting lots of interest. Completion of the building is scheduled for summer 2014.

Phase 2 of the development will offer tailored design and build office accommodation to meet occupiers’ requirements with bespoke building solutions available. Jim Milne, chairman and managing director of Balmoral said:

“Open vistas over the surrounding lochside area will provide the occupants with an outstanding working environment whilst the setting and design of the park will offer an architectural statement that is sure to make a significant and lasting contribution to Aberdeen’s cityscape. The quality, choice, and environmental setting of this development is unprecedented in Aberdeen.”

Gary Gerrard, non-executive director with Balmoral, said: “Demand for quality campus-type office accommodation in Aberdeen continues to outstrip supply. Shepherd (01224 202 800) and Ryden (01224 588 866) are joint agents for Balmoral Business Park.
