Dundee Custom House to be turned into five-star hotel
February 26 2013submission of plans drawn up by JM Architects for the conversion of the former Customs House and Harbour Chambers into a 38 bedroom boutique hotel.
This will entail construction of a modest new build extension to the existing building clad in narrow, grey, horizontal timber strips.
Important internal features of the listed buildings will also be retained; notably the first floor boardroom which retains fine oak paneling and an ornate fireplace with the crest of the Port Authority carved upon it.
It is a busy time for the city’s hotel sector with two more hotels planned nearby; the Malmaison and Railway Station Hotel. Together these projects are valued at £30m and will double capacity at Dundee Waterfront to well over 500 rooms.
Mike Galloway, Dundee city development director, said: “The new hotels are well timed in advance of a variety of major tourism and infrastructure developments in the city, the largest of which is the new V&A at Dundee, on which work will start later this year”.
