Dundee’s Marketgait to fill up with homes and shops

Brunton Design are in the home straight of an 18-month journey to planning after applying the finishing touches to their vision for 43 flats above ground floor retail at Marketgait, Dundee, on the site of a former petrol filling station.

The £6m build is the product of protracted discussions with planners for the prominent plot, just yards from the B-listed Henderson Jute Mill.

Allan Mudie, of Brunton Design, said: “We have been in discussions with the local Dundee authority for about two years now. Their officials have been unfailingly helpful and enthusiastic. It’s great to be putting forward plans for such an important building outside the waterfront.

“We are of course aware of the sensitive setting and have been very careful to take account of this in our design. We aim to produce a contemporary building, using environmentally-friendly material, construction methods and energy sources.”

A planning application is expected shortly.

A mix of ground floor shops and restaurants are planned

Considering the rubbish that has gone up in Dundee over recent years, this is actually a massive improvement.

Run for your life people! Massive tsunami of trees are swallowing blocks in the background. Paralyzed cars are already melting into concrete (ref image 3).

By the love of aesthetics - since when rubbish visuals like this became acceptable?

Thanks UR for before photo. This response to a broken down streetscape has a lot of merits.
