Building works on a retail and flat development in Mountfleurie could create up to five new shop units by early summer.
The Turpie Road site, adjacent to Aldi supermarketand the Vettriano Vale estate, is being developed by the Ramzan Partnership, based in Kennoway.
Architect Alan Baxter, from Davidson Baxter Partnership in Kirkcaldy, said: “It’s been designed in such a way that, depending on interest, the units can be subdivided into a maximum of five spaces.
“One of the units may become a hot food takeaway but nothing has yet been set in stone.”
Above the ground retail floor, the two-storey building will feature two one-bedroom flats, and three two-bed flats.
Mr Baxter added: “We started just before Christmas doing groundworks and the builders are looking to complete in early summer.
The Mail understands the Ramzan Partnershippurchased the Mountfleurie site about three or four years ago as a business investment.
Mr Baxter said:“The other half of the site , which currently remains undeveloped, has outline planning permission for a 42 bed care home.”
