Plans have been lodged to build more than 20 flats on Aberdeen’s Union Street.
Nice Point Ltd has applied for permission from the local authority for 23 flats at 173 Union Street, above the current Santander branch.
The upper floors of the building have lain vacant, according to a report submitted along with the application.
Part of the plans, which was also lodged for another building at the rear on Windmill Brae, will involve changing the class of the building to allow the flats. The report, created by Fitzgerald and Associates, pitches the new flats at “first-time buyers and young professionals” if they are approved by the local authority.

During the past 30 years, the unoccupied flats have fallen into a state of disrepair, particularly on the third floor of the building, where the applicant plans to rip out the flooring and start again due to damage from the outside world.
Aberdeen City Council has until May 17 to decide on the plans.
