Dundee’s Hilltown goes back to the future with tenement rebirth
October 10 2016regenerate Derby Street in the Hilltown area of the city.
Occupying the site of a number of demolished high-rise blocks and low-rise sixties housing the scheme aims to recreate the street patterns of the Victorian era with the creation of two blocks of accommodation wrapping around central courtyards.
Mirroring the massing of neighbouring tenements this will centre on the reintroduction of Russell Street, which will be built to Designing Streets principles, to help integrate the community. Lined with tenement scale properties to create an urban presence the street frontage will also be defined by larger scale interventions at key corners.
Housing will be faced with a blended buff brick to offer a contrast with the prevailing grey granite tenements in the area and will range from one bedroom flats through to four bedroom houses.
