Hilltown textile mill survivor lined up for residential conversion

A rare surviving example of Dundee's mill heritage in Hilltown has been lined up for conversion to residential use.

Wellwood Leslie proposes adjusting the internal layout of all floors to accommodate five apartments within the former Hilltown Works, a former textile mill of which only the street frontage survives.

Languishing in a poor state of repair the current structure has been exposed to vegetation growth and general decay arising from water damage, although it remains structurally sound.

In a statement, the architects wrote: "With this building being one of the last physical remnants of the former textile industry within Hilltown we believe. Leaving the front facade unaltered pays homage to our perceived historical importance of Hillside Works."

A lack of amenity space afforded by the constrained nature of the site will be ameliorated by a rear balcony or terrace for each apartment.
