Fresh plans have been unveiled for student accommodation to be built on wasteland on Aberdeen's John Street.

City-based firm Levelling Up Real Estate initially hoped the £60million development could feature a mix of flats, private apartments and student accommodation.

But architect Halliday Fraser Munro has now confirmed it is only pressing ahead with the student flats.

The 383-bedroom energy-efficient building could also feature a cinema room and study facilities.

It is anticipated that the new accommodation will range between four and seven storeys in size and have a private courtyard for students.

The Press & Journal says the latest plan comes after a previous attempt to build student flats on the site -
on the former Ambassador snooker hall ground - fell through.

Two public consultations were held earlier this year to give residents the chance to have their say on the proposal for the land.

Feedback revealed there were some concerns about the height of the building, which has since been reduced.

Detailed plans for the latest John Street development are expected to be submitted to Aberdeen City Council in the near future.
