With signage now on site, Countesswells is pleased to announce that the first retail and commercial property opportunity at Aberdeen’s newest community is now on the market.
FG Burnett will be marketing the space, with a view to the first shops and local business units opening early in the new year.
With four housebuilders on site and around 200 homes already built, there is now sufficient demand for local amenities.
Jim Fitzsimons, special projects director at Countesswells, said: “With the announcement that plans for the first school are underway and now local retail opportunities, the pieces of the jigsaw are starting to come together as planned. Well located within the rapidly developing community and adjacent to what will eventually be the town centre, this first commercial unit will be a welcome addition for our new and existing residents.”
Situated close to the 1,000 homes, either built or being built by Stewart Milne, Kirkwood, Barratt and Chap, the retail space offers attractive opportunities for shops and small-scale offices, set around a public open square. This new neighbourhood of carefully designed streets is set within extensive landscaped parkland, which also features a new children’s playpark, a wildflower meadow and community orchard.
Richard Noble, managing director at FG Burnett, commented: “This prominently located retail and commercial unit, which compromises ground floor accommodation ready for tenant fit-out and shopfront, offers an exciting location for a wide range of occupiers.
“The unique and prestigious nature of Countesswells, along with the country’s fastest broadband speeds, will appeal to those in retail, office, professional, health-related and other sectors.”
