Hos­pi­tal to be turned into ho­tel

The Press and Journal (North-East) - - NEWS -

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.
