Aberdeen's first Private Rental Scheme recognised by ASA

Dandara’s Forbes Place development has received an award from The Aberdeen Society of Architects, which represents architects across the North-east of Scotland.

ASA, which has around 200 members, presented Dandara with a highly commended prize in the residential category at its Design Awards 2017.

A chapter of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, ASA promotes the interests of architects and architecture in the region.

The independent judging panel of 3 Scottish architectural experts praised Forbes Place’s landscape setting and the reduced impact of parking.

The four residential blocks at Stoneywood have been built with underground parking, allowing us to meet local planning requirements, with no impact on public spaces. These features are of direct benefit to all our residents; with free parking included for each apartment plus communal gardens to share and enjoy.

Gavin Wyley, managing director of Dandara in Scotland, said:

Forbes Place is a pioneering development for the Aberdeen and Scottish property industry and to have this recognition from architects in the local area is an honour.

Featuring 292 fully-furnished apartments and townhouses available for rental only, the development has attracted significant attention from the energy industry, with more than 40 per cent of lets secured from businesses looking for accommodation for personnel.

Residents can choose from studio, one and two bedroom apartments, available from £660 per month, as well as three-bedroom townhouses.
