Archial Architects Secures Planning Permission for Elegant Flat Development at Inverness’s Caledonian Canal
Archial Architects, one of the largest architecture practices in Scotland and the UK, has secured planning permission for an ambitious and elegant development of 81 apartments to be located alongside Inverness’s historic Caledonian Canal – a main gateway into the Highland Capital.
The area’s Planning Committee approved the development which will see the construction of six three, four and five storey blocks of flats on the site of a derelict filling station on the A82 and Torvean Caravan Park.
One three storey block will front on to Glenurquhart Road while two five storey blocks and one four storey block will overlook the Caledonian Canal.
Greg Duncan, Director at Inverness-based Archial Architects, said, “We were delighted to work with the developer and the area’s planning officials on what has been a demanding brief for this prestigious city gateway site. All involved wished to ensure that the proposal for this brownfield site would deliver well designed homes for Inverness’s people”.
“We also wanted to ensure that it delivered a strong message to tourists and potential inward investors that Inverness is a modern, vibrant city, confident and embracing leading edge design in its architectural portfolio.
It is important, too, that Inverness’s architecture reflects its identity as a modern city.
“Archial Architects is an international company and our office is able to offer our clients an international and outward looking design service drawn from our many creative and talented designers. Archial’s Inverness office is committed to designing projects which are sympathetic to the local architecture, but in keeping with the area’s forward looking and ambitious mindset.”
Archial Group Plc employs around 200 staff in Scotland, operating from offices in Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, and Dundee.
