Dundee Station planning application submitted
November 22 2012planning application has been submitted by Nicoll Russell Studio to Dundee City Council for a £14m replacement concourse building at Dundee Railway Station.
Designed to frame views of the Discovery and V&A Museum.from the High Street the new station building is intended to act as a civic statement by stacking hotel accommodation above the new concourse and providing space for a café, newsagent, retail unit and restaurant.
Retaining the original Victorian platform building the rebuild will rise to six storeys and embrace a curving plan to hug a new pedestrian plaza, fronted by a signature triple height arched concourse - a structural move necessitated by the need to span the tunnel below, but also a nod toward the grand railway arches of old.
Willie Watt, partner at Nicoll Russell Studios, told Urban Realm: “We were pleased that so many people took the time and effort to respond to the consultation exercise, including those who came to the presentation at Discovery Point."
"We received a number of interesting comments and suggestions relating to all aspects of the proposed development."
"Since the consultation ended we have carefully gone through all of the comments submitted and taken on board some of them in creating the final planning application that has now been submitted."
