Plans to transform the fire-hit Broadford Works into flats have won the backing of Aberdeen City Council officials.
An application will go before councillors at a meeting on Thursday and, if approved, will see the derelict site being transformed into 517 flats.
The local authority received four letters of representation regarding the plans, two of which were objections.
Around 175 flats would be created in the former factory on Hutcheon Street with nearly 170 parking spaces below ground.
The factory has been the target of vandals in recent years who have lit numerous fires.
A dangerous buildings notice was served on the premises last month demanding that security at the site was improved.
