Site clearance completes for Inverness affordable homes
March 21 2019
The Highland Council and Highland Housing Alliance have completed site clearance for a development of 37 affordable homes in Inverness city centre.
Wyvern House at 79 Academy Street replaces a former supermarket and is named after the Wyvern car, in a nod to the sites earlier history as a vehicle garage.
Councillor Trish Robertson said: “It is exciting to see the redevelopment of this prime city site move a step forward.
“It comes hot on the heels of the redevelopment of 92-94 Academy Street across the road and the refurbishment of the former CAB offices into new homes so when completed Wyvern House is really going to play it’s part in enhancing this part of the city by providing new homes and new business opportunities.”
The design and build contract is being delivered by Morrison Construction, who will begin construction in April.
