Occupying a prominent location at the junction of Belmont Street and Schoolhill in the heart of Aberdeen city centre, a short distance from Union Street and opposite Robert Gordon College, the Academy Centre is situated close to Bon Accord and St Nicholas Shopping Centres, The Trinity Centre and Union Square.

Formerly Aberdeen Academy School, the premises were extensively refurbished and restored 20 years ago to create a retail, leisure and office complex providing 67,000 sq ft of mixed use space with further reconfiguration undertaken more recently.

The original building fronting Belmont Street and Schoolhill dates from the 19th century with a striking granite façade incorporating original features, with the remainder of the Centre reconfigured to provide four interlinked blocks around the central courtyard.

James Morrison, associate – commercial agency at Shepherd in Aberdeen, said: “The area is well served with car parking with Loch Street and Harriet Street car parks within a two-minute walk. The city centre office core and main bus and railway stations are also within a five-minute walk from the centre. As such, we anticipate keen interest in these letting opportunities.”

Euan McGonigle at CBRE added: “A number of hotel and student developments have been, or are due to be, undertaken in close proximity to the Centre which will further enhance the footfall in the immediate area, which forms a well-established leisure led destination. Occupiers within The Academy include: Revolution de Cuba; Greene King; Jack Wills and Nandos.”
