Kirkwood Homes go back to the drawing board for inner city Dundee housing
May 12 2017development of 45 flats on land formerly occupied by St Joseph’s Primary at Bellfield Street, Dundee, after withdrawing an earlier 49 home proposal.
Comprised entirely of two-bedroom flats targeted at first-time buyers, students and empty nesters the scheme has been designed to terminate a prominent corner junction in an area characterized by new university development.
This approach will seek to create a more urban character to the Hawkhill bypass by building out to the street edge and at increased scale to neighbouring industrial buildings.
In a planning statement emac wrote: “On a key corner site such as this, scale and massing are important considerations to create a landmark piece of townscape, a feature building.
“The proposed design / layout is characterised by two legs fronting onto Hawkhill and Bellfield Street connected by a key façade fronting onto the Hawkhill junction.”
