A total of 10 bids have been made to re-develop a former Aberdeen school.
Aberdeen City Council said it was very pleased with the level of interest in the Victoria Road School site in Torry.
Six bidders have noted proposals for the property, which is due to be demolished.
They include Torry Development Trust, which is responsible for two of the submissions, and hopes to retain and restore the granite building rather than knocking it down.
Trust member David Fryer said: “The trust is ready and willing to meet with others to work in bringing community benefits to Torry.
“In the case of the buildings we have clearly expressed the community viewpoint to keep them.”
One of the bids put forward by the trust is a suggestion that the building should be returned to the community for a token £1 payment.
The second is based on a valuation that the trust felt was fair, and capable of being raised by donations.
The community council previously put forward a bid in April, which was rejected by the city council’s property sub-committee.
The process closed on July 1, and it is thought offers will be submitted to the property sub-committee in September. Interested parties wil be told the outcome soon after.
An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: “We’ve been very pleased with the level of interest in the site and have received a number of offers.”
