Plans to turn a former Aberdeen building society branch into flats have been withdrawn.
BAPT Ltd lodged an application to transform 461 Union Street and create five apartments.
A design statement by Neil Rothnie Architects said the property is vacant on all floors, having previously been used as a building society and associated offices.
Most recently the building had been used as general site offices during the construction of the adjacent Silver Fin building.

The proposals would have retained the ground and first floor as commercial/retail use and changed the use of the second and third floor to the flats.
The statement added that residential use was the “only realistic use” for the upper floors of the property and the application would have brought more people to live in the city centre.
Aberdeen City Council is aiming to boost the number of people setting up home in the city centre and this forms a key strand of the City Centre Masterplan.
Plans state the proposals are “entirely consistent” with the local authority’s aspirations for the city centre and would see a vacant building brought back into use.
BAPT Ltd could not be reached for comment.
