Dundee’s District 10 officially unveiled
A £1.7m office development constructed entirely from 37 disused shipping containers has been officially unveiled at Seabraes Yard on Dundee’s waterfront by Scottish Enterprise.

District 10, conceived by Aim Design, is intended to provide a hub for the creative industries and was built by Maxi Construction in collaboration with Fairhurst structural engineers using modular and pre-fabricated elements.

Mick McHugh, Scottish Enterprise’s Tayside location director, commented: “District 10 is a fantastic addition to Dundee’s Waterfront, with its distinctive look ensuring it is a landmark in an area fast becoming a hot spot for creative companies.

“The building can flexibly accommodate up to 15 companies and is already attracting interest from other potential tenants. It’s entirely fitting that the first company in District 10, LAT_56, offers exclusive design-led products. When it opens, the V&A at Dundee will be a few minutes’ walk from District 10 and will showcase cutting edge design exhibits and architecture."

District 10 has been delivered to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ standard.

Yep, this is an impressive development, very innovative and looks great against the waterfront.
Well done to Aim and Scottish Enterprise.
