COMMENT:

It is with a great deal of pleasure that we can make this announcement. The proprietors of Station Garage (Bob Shepherd and Adrian MacGregor) need to be thanked for their commitment and vision to bringing the project to this stage. Thanks also has to go to Aberdeenshire Councillors and Planning Department who have had the vision to support this project.

This is a very important development for Torphins specifically and Deeside generally. It is the result of almost 15 years of forward planning and puts in place the framework for the future of the village, offering a foundation for jobs and business opportunity in the Deeside Village. 

The Full Planning Permission covers all aspect of the Business Park, including the Design of all Buildings and Accommodation  not only those encompassing Station Garage ongoing and future needs but also incorporating Advance Units providing for flexible space and accommodation to suit user need. As with all Commercial projects, the Anchor Tenant is  needed to get the Business park off the ground. Station garage is the Anchor tenant and this will encourage other businesses to follow into the New Park.

We've now connected our main site to our Linked In and Facebook pages. You'll now receive regular updates on these platforms from our website. 

Malaysian Cultural Centre

We are pleased to announce that we are working with Grampian Links in order to create a new Malaysian Cultural Centre in the heart of Aberdeen. The centre will be a hub from which the Malaysian culture can be explored, and where business - on a personal and commercial basis - can be easily accessed and promoted to the population and business community of Aberdeen. The aim being to encourage communication and linkage to the mutual benefit of both parties.

The proposed site is at 13 Adelphi, originally a Social Club, now left vacant. The planning application has been lodged and we are eager to see where this project goes. More information, including our drawings and design statement can be found on the Aberdeen Planning Portal - A link will be posted when it's available. 

The proposed design includes a "Bubble Tea Bar" and a "Zen Garden". Bubble tea is an exciting drink from Taiwan, with tea mixed with fruit and/or milk, and will be available for take-aways! The Zen garden promises to be a very interesting place - a garden within the heart of a building. With a living wall of plants, and authentic Zen Garden design, the incorporated meeting spaces will be very special places to be. A light well transfers light to the lower ground floor using light coloured materials and mirrors to reflect and diffuse the light into the garden. Adjacent to this garden is the four over night stay facilities, with bedrooms, en-suits and even small lounge. These lounges will also benefit from the light and look onto the garden.

See our section below, showing off the Zen Garden, with light flooding down the light well!
