Construction underway at Inverness city centre housing

Highland Housing Alliance and Highland Council have commenced delivery of a major Norr-designed housing and retail project at 79 Academy Street.

The superstructure of Wyvern House is already taking shape at the hands of Morrison Construction ahead of its anticipated completion by summer next year when 37 new apartments and four retail units will take there place along the thoroughfare.

The Provost of Inverness Helen Carmichael commented: “By creating much-needed quality new homes for local people in the heart of Inverness we will give it a vibrancy which has been missing. However I believe that the redevelopment of this landmark site is more than creating quality new homes – it is also about bringing investment, jobs, people and visitors to this part of the city and the project complements all the other work going on to restoring a sense of place to Academy Street.”

The city centre site was formerly occupied by a Farm Foods outlet along with a mix of properties for mid-market and social rent.
