A 42-home development under construction at Craigie Fields will include 30 properties for rent.
The Dundee development will also include 12 three-bedroom, semi-detached homes to be offered for sale.
The homes available for rent will be offered through Angus Housing Association and will comprise a selection of two and three-bedroom homes and cottage flats.
Also in the mix is a six-bedroom wheelchair-friendly property, specially designed to allow householders with additional needs to continue living at home.
The property layout has been created so that it can easily convert to two separate dwellings in the future if required.
All the house styles at Craigie Fields have been designed exclusively for the location, with each home benefiting from cost-saving renewable energy supplied by solar panels.
The work is being carried out by Cruden Homes’ east of Scotland building arm, Hart Builders.
Craigie Fields is located on the city’s Pitairlie Road on the site of the former Mid Craigie Primary School which closed in 2009.
It’s also adjacent to Mid Craigie Park.
The completion of the 12 semi-detached homes is scheduled for August.
Meanwhile, Dundee city planners have recommended that councillors approve a controversial Broughty Ferry housing development, despite receiving 55 objections from locals.
A report on proposals for homes in the Linlathen area, north of the Ferry, conceded they do not align with the city’s local development plan.
However, local representatives have been asked to approve the plans because of a need for housing from next year.
Kirkwood Homes hopes to build 150 three, four and five-bedroom properties.
