Hearts hope to begin work on their new main stand in November.
The club expect to get planning permission next month to begin work at Tynecastle.
The new main stand will take the capacity to 20,000.
“We really are almost there,” Hearts owner Ann Budge told BBC Scotland.
“The planning committee will meet in October. They will be coming to look at what we want to do and why. I genuinely think we have answered all the questions and addressed all the problems.
“Assuming it all goes through in October then I would like to think we would be knocking down some of the old buildings in November.”
Budge hopes the new stand will be ready by September 2017.
