Dundee pub to make way for shops and flats
October 12 2018
The days of a disused Dundee pub look to be numbered following submission of plans by Jon Frullani Architect for its demolition and replacement with four shops and nine flats.
The Rock Public House on Dickson Avenue has been earmarked for the build, signalling the end for the unprepossessing single-storey brick-built structure.
In its place will rise a two and three storey brick structure with floor to ceiling windows with south facing balconies providing occupants with views across the Tay Estuary.
In a statement the architect wrote: “The building has been designed and positioned on the application site to minimise any impact on the amenity of the existing flatted building to the west in terms of overlooking, overshadowing and physical impact. At its eastern end the building steps up to 3 storeys to provide a presence through the creation of a landmark building at a prominent curve on the Dickson Avenue streetscape. The scale, massing, design, location and finish of the building have evolved to signify a transition in land uses on the Dickson Avenue streetscape.”
Site constraints preclude inclusion of gardens but residents will have access to an existing car parking to the north.
