A proposed new community hub has been awarded £2 million by the Scottish Government.
The project to deliver a new purpose-built facility on the site of the former Torry Academy is one of 18 across Scotland to receive funding.
A total of £20.2m will be awarded during the 2019-20 period under the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF).
Maureen Watt, MSP for Aberdeen South and North Kincardine, said: “This is fantastic news and I am delighted that the Torry Community Hub will benefit from this funding.
“The hub will act as a key focal point for Torry residents, and ensures those in need will have access to support services. I am also encouraged the community cafe will give people an excellent opportunity to socialise and engage with other members of the community.
“This will provide the Torry community with an invaluable asset and I look forward to seeing the hub once it is completed.”

The facility will provide integrated services on a flexible basis in one place. It will also provide a community cafe and will encourage new users to access services.
Plans were lodged last month to demolish the former Torry school building on Tullos Circle. Proposals have been formed to create a new primary school on the site, which will also include the new state-of-the-art community hub and childcare facilities.
The fund is a joint investment between the Scottish Government, COSLA and local authorities.
Aileen Campbell, Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government, said: “The projects being supported are wide ranging and collectively will help tackle inequality and support inclusive growth in disadvantaged communities and fragile rural areas.”
