Hospital to be turned into hotel
Work to turn a historic Aberdeen hospital into a boutique hotel and apartments could begin in January 2020.
CAF Properties, owned by Aberdeen-based prop- erty developer Charlie Ferrari, lodged plans two years ago to turn four A-listed buildings at Woolmanhill into a 52-bedroom hotel along with 42 residential apartments.
Mr Ferrari said they hope to be on site by January 2020 to begin construction work.
He added: “We just got the planning consent so we will need to go for licensing board approval in January 2019 then we have to apply for all sorts of building warrants.
“It is likely we won’t be on site until January 2020. It’s been a long haul and we have a lot of hard work to go.”
City council planners have approved proposals for the site, which closed its doors in April 2017.
