Marischal Square, Aberdeen – Ongoing Development

Marischal Square - Work in Progress...
Almost Complete…

The Marischal Square project (by Muse Developments) on Broad Street is beginning to draw to a close. The exterior is now essentially complete except for a few cladding tiles here and there, the windows are in, and the final form of the property is now well-established.

The project has experienced some push-backs from parts of the community, and as yet, the premises is not fully let, but it has the potential to bring some hard cash to the city. Will the locals buy-into it? That is yet to be seen. However, I am optimistic as ever, and hope that it brings further prestige to the city.

As my principal obsession is with light, I have observed that that the warm evening sun kisses the walls rather beautifully. I am also rather taken-aback by the dark window frames which crisply and precisely puncture the walls.

At present, it is not possible to access the site, and so the photographic opportunities are quite limited. However, I shall be posting further images of this rather interesting space as the site begins to clear.

Please check-out my Instagram feed for further images (some of which are of this project).

So the inaugural Nuart Street Art Festival in Aberdeen has been and gone. However it has left-behind a legacy of captivating images on the walls and doors around the city centre.

Whilst the event was short-lived (14-16 April 2017), the organisers managed to pack-in a number of excellent interactive events such as tours, talks and even a film premier.

I’m sure that the event was a resounding success, and so I hope that it will return again in the future.
