Planning renewal sought for stalled Dundee apartments
March 23 2023
The application by A.B. Roger & Young Architects would replace a former warehouse on the corner with South Marketgait with a seven-floor new build block.
In a design statement, the architects observed: "The pre-application response raised some concern over the scale and massing of the proposed building in relation to its impact on the character of nearby buildings. A recommendation to increase the ceiling height of the retail units to reflect the building to the west and to remove a level from the building was taken on board.
"The materials to be used on the new building include stone on the ground floor to match listed buildings nearby finished with a mixed palette of grey metal sheeting above."
Drawing the street line forward the facades are broken by balconies and a setback penthouse floor corresponding to the roof of Unicorn House.
