Statement of Interest

1-5 St Nicholas Street is situated on a prominent corner site at the commercial heart of the city. Its sweeping corner bay follows the style established during the intitial phase of the construction of Classical Aberdeen at the beginning of the century. This traditional building type makes a significant contribution to this part of the streescape, augmented by the unusual use of Corinthian capitals.
