Dundee Station redevelopment plans unveiled
April 16 2012
Ken Guild leader of Dundee City Council said: "The weight restricted bridges in front of Dundee Station are due to be replaced as part of the Central Waterfront work, which will create a new public square and attractive arrival space outside the station.
"This work provides a perfect opportunity to cost-effectively tackle the station concourse itself within the same timescale, because doing nothing is simply not an option.
"We have already spoken with local architects Nicoll Russell Studios who have created a sweeping crescent shaped five storey design, which has an imposing double height ground floor. The design has also taken account of the proposed V&A at Dundee building to the south and the proposed Malmaison Hotel to the north east.
"I believe it will be the fitting arrival point for visitors that we need to properly complement the V&A building and its magnificent setting."
Subject to approval by councillors this week a funding package will be put together including £8.6m from Dundee City Council, £2m from a European Regional Development Grant and £1m from the Scottish Government.
The remainder of the financing will be sought from Network Rail.
