Proposals for 130 new homes in Dundee have been submitted to council planners.
If approved, the properties at the Ellengowan Estate in Springhill will be made up of a mix of houses, cottage flats and flats.
The homes will be available for mid-market rent and managed by Northern Housing Company and social rent managed by Hillcrest Housing Association.
The new properties, which face on to Arbroath Road near Baxter Park, would also house the Kiosk Shop,which has been a long-standing fixture in the neighbourhood.
The shop would trade from temporary premises while the construction work is taking place.
Colin Clement, chairman of the Stobswell Forum, said the development would be a good thing for both the area and Dundee.
He said: “We have been involved quite heavily in this development as at the start there were concerns for some of the residents who have been in the existing properties for decades.
“We are supportive of the housing association, though, as I think they work really hard to provide a good service for their tenants, and took on board concerns by existing residents.
“We understand why the properties need to be replaced.
“A number were built in the 1960s and 1970s and are no longer fit for purpose.
“I think in general this will be really positive, both for the area and the city as a whole.
“New housing is all about quality in Dundee. We do need as many quality, affordable houses as we can get. There is always a demand, I think.
“So in all, this is to be welcomed by the Stobswell Forum.”
Hillcrest’s director of development and new business, David Zwirlein, said the plans will provide homes for future generations of Ellengowan residents.
He said: “This is an exciting milestone in the journey to regenerate Ellengowan Estate. The central aim of the redevelopment is to offer a new home to existing residents who wish to remain living on the estate.
“If approved, the proposals outlined in this application will provide high quality, energy-efficient homes to current and future generations of Ellengowan residents.”
Architects Collective Architecture submitted the plans, which are the result of a period of extensive planning and community consultation.
If the application is successful, demolition will start on the site at the end of the year with construction work beginning in early 2019.
