Vacant ground on Dundee’s City Quay is to be taken forward as affordable housing following the submission of new plans by JM Architects on behalf of Victoria Dock and Hillcrest Housing Association.
The pairing are looking to deliver 122 waterfront flats spread across two blocks of up to seven storeys, enclosing a parking and amenity space and including one ground floor commercial unit, on land sandwiched between South Victoria Road and Marine Parade Walk.
Documenting their vision the architects wrote of their proposal: “Our proposals relate to the adjacent urban developments whilst being sensitive to the lower height historic mews at Chandlers Lane. It introduces an open green space into the heart of the plan and affords all apartments garden or sea views.”
The site is a key component of Dundee’s waterfront masterplan which seeks to restore the city’s waterfront to prominence.
Subject to approval work could start by the end of the year, ready for occupation by tenants from late 2020.
