Work to turn a beloved former Aberdeen music shop into flats has started.
Ogilvie Constructed has launched the £11million project to build the flats on the site of the former Bruce Millers store on Union Street for SACO The Serviced Apartment Company.
The nine-storey building will include studio and one bedroom flats grouped around internal courtyards.
It will incorporate a cafe bar on the ground floor, with the apartment reception on the first floor.
It is due for completion in autumn next year.
Donald MacDonald, managing director for Ogilvie Construction, said: “We are delighted to be working with SACO to deliver a major project that will provide high quality accommodation in the centre of Aberdeen.
“Our teams have extensive experience in the hotel and leisure sector and the building will be constructed to the highest standard, providing first class accommodation in an excellent location.”
Stephen Hanton, chief executive of commercial for SACO, added: “Scotland is a key growth market for SACO and, as a major business destination as well as one visited by many tourists, opening a property in Aberdeen is a priority for us.”
Bruce Millers, which sold instruments and other paraphernalia to generations of music lovers in the north-east, closed in 2011.
