Dundee’s Hilltown on the rise with renewed housing commitment
Cullross Ltd and Caledonia Housing Association have fleshed out their plans for a development of 57 affordable homes in the Hilltown area of Dundee.

Supplanting a disused engineering works off Alexander Street the residential development is being spearheaded by JM Architects who recenbtly filed a planning application following close of consultations.

Emma Garry development director at Cullross said: “We recently completed homes at the end of Alexander Street on Dens Road, so we know the area well and are keen to contribute in any way we can to the regeneration of Alexander Street.”

Andrew Kilpatrick, asset director at Caledonia Housing Association added: “The site provides an ideal location for a mix of low cost home ownership and high quality affordable rent homes and reaffirms Caledonia’s commitment to work with Dundee City Council to provide homes and services that make life better.”

Subject to planning approval the new homes could be on-site this winter for completion by spring 2020.

"make life better"... CHA and JM are surely having a laugh cladding the entirety of this in grey render?

All the hard work down at the waterfront to make some form of attempt to bring Dundee in the 21st century and this just blasts it straight back to 1960.

These more detailed renders make it look even worse!...this has slum written all over it...or graffitied all over it...

Not sure what’s going on with the corner block, but it looks to me like the building has somehow turned its back on the street/entrance. You can throw a nice sky and trees into any image like this but frankly all you’re is doing in this case is trying to mask a building that looks like its been plucked from a grey rendered 1960’s new town.
