The Merchant Building project will rejuvenate the heart of Aberdeen by transforming the old Aberdeen Market area into a thriving modern hub.

Located close to Union Street, Union Square and Aberdeen Railway station, the Merchant Building development will comprise circa 128,000 sq ft of Grade ‘A’ office space, new public realm and leisure, food and drink outlets, all with excellent transport links.

Lovingly designed for Aberdeen’s skyline, the Merchant Building, with its fabulous lantern roof feature, will create an orientating landmark for locals and visitors alike to come together. Other benefits of the proposed development include:

  • Improvements to existing urban spaces, such as The Green
  • Creation of new urban spaces of high environmental quality
  • Improved connections between existing neighbouring areas

As well as introducing new Grade A office space, the redevelopment of the area around The Green will see the expansion of existing pedestrian areas to create a welcoming space to host food markets, concerts and other open-air events. New art installations will also help to make The Green a landmark destination in it’s own right.

Planning permission has been granted for this project, following extensive public consultation. The approved design focuses on complementing and enhancing Aberdeen’s cityscape.
