A new £400m business hub which will create 8000 jobs in the next ten years is to be created on the outskirts of Aberdeen.

The facility will be built next to Aberdeen International Airport by Miller Developments.

The company has acquired 93 acres of development land at Dyce Drive with planning consent already in place for 1.4million sqft of office, industrial and distribution space.

David Milloy, joint managing director Miller Developments, said: “This acquisition demonstrates our confidence in the market and Aberdeen in particular.

"As the economy in Aberdeen continues to thrive and with the welcome news that the AWPR is proceeding, we believe the site is the perfect location to create a brand new area for business, servicing the city and beyond.

“With superb accessibility, planning consents in place and our investment in the necessary infrastructure, we are confident this will be an exciting proposition for businesses looking for a new or expanded base in Aberdeen.

“As a result, we have already had interest in the development from companies both within Aberdeen and abroad, and are confident of announcing our first deals with occupiers in the near future.

"We will continue to work closely with Aberdeen City Council and Transport Scotland as we move the development forward.”
