Deputy leader Marie Boulton added: "This is wonderful news. The Triple Kirks was designed by Archibald Simpson and is a shining example o2f some of Aberdeen's finest architecture. The re-development of this historic landmark is something citizens have wanted to see for many years and I am delighted Dandara plan to start work so quickly.
"It is fantastic to see so many wonderful plans for the city centre and this, combined with the redevelopment of the St Nicholas House site, will go a long way towards revitalising the city centre."
Gavin Wyley, managing director of Dandara in Aberdeen, said: "This is another significant step forward for the regeneration of Aberdeen city centre as a prime place to do business, and we are proud to have acquired one of the city's true architectural jewels.
