Detailed plans for the proposed new look for the site of the former Aberdeen City Council headquarters have been lodged.

Muse Developments was chosen to deliver the new £107m shape of the St Nicholas House area.

Muse wants to create offices, shops, restaurants and a hotel on the site.

The developers said they had listened to feedback, making more public space available and giving greater prominence to historic Provost Skene's House.

In 2011, more than 1,000 council staff vacated the 14-storey St Nicholas House building, erected in 1968, for the newly-refurbished Marischal College building.
