Enabling works will see modifications carried out to the Denburn Culvert to improve flood prevention, allowing delivery of the latest phase of the authorities council house building programme.
Geared toward key workers plans drawn up by Hypostyle outline a mix of homes set amid a network of paths and green spaces.
Council co-leader Douglas Lumsden said: “Access to housing greatly improves the quality of life for residents by creating new communities and opening up new social and economic horizons.
“Our programme also supports employment and training opportunities and gives us a chance to attract and retain key workers – nurses, teachers, craft workers – making it a win-win-win for the city.”
Each property will have access to a combined heat and power scheme to help minimise energy bills and will be fitted with fibre optic cables to improve digital connectivity.
