Work on Aberdeen’s largest council housing development in a decade will begin this month.
Nearly 100 new, modern homes are to be built on the site of the former Smithfield Primary School.
The Middlefield development marks a key milestone in Aberdeen City Council’s attempt to roll out thousands of new, affordable homes over the next two years.
Leader of the local authority, Councillor Jenny Laing said: “This flagship project will create contemporary, all purpose homes for residents in our city who are struggling to meet private rents and who are struggling to find suitable accommodation.”
Cllr Laing added: “And it is only the beginning of a number of exciting announcements.”
The 99 homes planned for the former school site will be energy-efficient to help with fuel costs.
Properties will range from one-bedroom flats to four-bedroom houses, both detached and semi-detached.
The area of Provost Rust Drive, Smithfield Drive and Clarke Street will also benefit from improved green spaces around the new development with a new play area built on the site.
The new properties have been designed by North-east firm Lippe Architects and will be constructed by CHAP Construction.
