Councillors will be asked next week to award a demolition contract as part of Aberdeen’s Berryden Corridor improvement scheme.
The empty buildings of 78 and 86-90 Powis Terrace will be removed as part of the £26.4 million scheme, which is designed to help traffic move around the city better.
Councillors will be asked to instruct council officers to award the contract for the work to David Smith Contractors.
Aberdeen’s former Central Garage once occupied one of the buildings.
A report by Mike Matheson, senior engineer with the council, said it has “long been the intention” to include the demolition of the buildings within the main Berryden Corridor Improvement works contract.
But he added there is an “opportunity” to demolish the buildings in advance.
The works will comprise of the removal and disposal of asbestos.
Demolition works will include the lower ground floor being knocked down as well as its concrete retaining walls.
The £26.4m upgrade would see the existing road widened to a dual carriageway from Skene Square to the St Machar Drive roundabout.
Members of the communities, housing and infrastructure committee will consider the report on Tuesday.
