The Trencherfield Mill Project was undertaken by Stewart Milne, who comes originally from Aberdeen.
He bought all of the land adjacent to Aberdeens football ground, and then offered the football club a new stand.
Obviously they accepted it with open arms, so up went a massive stadium.
This then set the new skyline for adjacent properties, and hence allowed Milnes to build a series of multi storey apartments, instead of the standard 3 tier tenament type buildings traditionally found throughout Aberdeen.
obviously doubling his profit margins.
Milnes growth in the building sector has been prolific, and he is now one of the richest men in Scotland.
so in promotion of Ruddy Duck, Nothing would surprise me re under hand deals and failed promises.
27 of the new properties in Trencherfield Mill, have been repossessed, and have recently been sold for the knock down price of 42 grand each, via a closed auction.
