A hospital in Aberdeen that is set to be transformed into a boutique hotel is now seeking an operator for the new venture.
Work on the hospital, which closed its doors in April this year, was scheduled to begin in June, with four A-listed buildings at Woolmanhill due to be converted into a 52-bedroom boutique hotel, along with 40 homes.
The project is being headed up by CAF Properties, owned by developer Charlie Ferrari.
Now signs advertising a ‘landmark hotel development opportunity’ have been placed around the site, indicating that the developer is still on the hunt for a firm to take it on.
The original hospital building on the site was begun in 1740, designed by William Christall. But Aberdeen’s most famous architectural son, Archibald Simpson, designed the Simpson Pavilion in 1833.
The new project is one of many planned for Aberdeen over the coming years, with a Sandman Signature hotel being constructed in the former Robert Gordon University School of computing in St Andrew Street and the creation of a new Marriott planned for the Marischal Square development.
