Construction has commenced on seven, two bedroomed contemporary apartments located in the heart of Stonehaven.

The former Bervie Chipper site, damaged by fire in 2009, is undergoing a transformation led by local investment firm West Coast Estates.

Iftikar Mian, director of West Coast Estates, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to get started with giving this prominent site a new lease of life. Opportunities to buy a new-build home in Stonehaven are few, and far between and we can’t wait for people in the area to see the quality of these apartments. They will make a great home for a wide range of people including first-time buyers, professionals and those looking to downsize.”

BDG Thomson Gray is acting as Quantity Surveyor on the four-storey development that is due for completion in summer 2019.

Shirley Thomson, Director of BDG Thomson Gray, said: “We are delighted to be assisting with this development in the heart of Stonehaven.  The site is in a great location, and is regenerating a site that has lain derelict for too long.”
