A PROMINENT rundown building in Gourock is being lined up for the town's latest restaurant development.
Richard Robb Architects have drawn up plans for a possible burger eaterie in the ground floor of premises in Shore Street at the corner of John Street.
A planning application has already been submitted to carry out remedial repair work to the tenement.

A statement form the architects added: "We are also drawing up some ideas for a new BRGR restaurant potentially coming to Gourock.
"This privately-owned business currently operates successfully in Glasgow's West End and Giffnock and it's great to see businesses interested in investing in Inverclyde.
"Gourock is rightly proud to be home to a range of individual traders and businesses. It would be great to add one more to the mix and see a derelict building brought back to life."
The proposal is the latest in a growing number of restaurant developments in Gourock town centre.
Permission was given in December for the Wee Chippy, also on Shore Street, just across John Street to become a 35-seat restaurant.
A decision is awaited on whether the former Bank of Scotland building at 19 Kempock Street can be turned into a restaurant with more than 100 seats.
Cafe Flava in Kempock Street has been given permission to expand into two neighbouring flats.
The Cafe Continental in Kempock Street was given permission last year to create dining space on the upper floor at the premises with access to a roof terrace.
Two coffee shops have also opened in Kempock Street recently -- Fresh, in the former Greggs bakery shop, and Bakehouse, in the former Post Office.
