First look at our vision of the Skene Street Project

In June we announced that Architects George Watt & Stewart’s Partner Lucy MacKenzie kindly offered to work with us to help plan our vision for the Skene Street Project. Since June we have been working closely with Lucy who has done an amazing job putting our vision on to paper.

To celebrate Aberdeen City Centre Community Council’s 2nd Birthday we want to share the amazing work done by Lucy and GWS and our long term vision for the Skene Street Project with you all. We have always said this would be an inter-generational space and include something for everyone and we feel these plans reflects our vision very well.

Along with new play equipment which has already been funded by Aberdeen Forward we plan to include a gym that is suitable for all ages and abilities, seating and a great space to relax with herbs, wild flowers and fruit trees all with the idea of creating an alternative to using the pavement.

Some of the work has been started including a new path that will help incorporate land previously not included in the site. Working in partnership with Aberdeen City Council we now have the task of securing funding to make our vision for this previously grey space that was not fit for purpose into a city centre space to be proud of.

Please let us know what you think of the plans via comments below or by email skenestreetproject@citycentrecc.com
