A hotel in Aberdeen could be expanded and renovated after plans to transform the property were submitted to the local council.
The city’s Station Hotel on Guild Street, owned by the Cairn Group, secured planning permission in August 2014 to demolish part of the B-listed building, but since then nothing has been done and now plans have changed to include an expansion and renovation of the exterior and interior of the whole building.
The work would be split into five different phases, with the refurbishment commencing before the demolition work.
Shops, offices and restaurants are also planned for the redevelopment, which would involve increasing the height of the building to more than 10 storeys.
A statement on behalf of the owners of the Station Hotel said there is a need to renovate the hotel.
It said: “The success of the project involves essential alterations to a listed building. In designing the alterations, the building and its setting are preserved and special considerations to the features of special architectural or historic interest have been treated sensitively.
“This proposal to refurbish the existing hotel fits in with the already approved plans to extend the hotel and this project overall will secure the long-term future for the building, restoring and enhancing the building and maintaining important features.”
