Contractors have been asked to bid for work to regenerate a historic Aberdeen garden.
Aberdeen City Council has issued a contract notice for Union Terrace Gardens as part of its City Centre Masterplan.
The work is valued at £19 million.
Councillor Marie Boulton, lead on the City Centre Masterplan, said: “There has already been significant interest from the construction supply chain in what is a hugely prestigious project and we look forward to seeing the response to the tender invitation.
“The design respects the heritage value of the site.”
Work to transform the gardens is expected to take 18-24 months.
