AROUND £500,000 is to be put towards upgrading Provost Skene’s House as part of the £107 million Marischal Square project.
And bringing it back into use as a museum and cafe or as an entrance to the proposed 126-room Marriott Hotel are among suggestions being put forward for the building’s future use.
It comes after objectors raised fears about the development’s impact on the 16th Century landmark at the heart of the former St Nicholas House site.
Two office buildings, a hotel, and seven restaurants and bars are to be part of the Marischal Square project.
Final plans for the scheme show about two-thirds of the outside of the building will be glass, with the rest made of granite.
Discussions will take place in the coming months with Aberdeen City Council and Historic Scotland over what the £500,000 will be used for and proposals for Provost Skene’s House.
