Dundee scales new heights with ‘Sydney Opera House’ vision
December 13 2018
Invertay Homes have revealed plans to take Dundee to new heights with plans to build the tallest building in Scotland on the city’s waterfront.
The Discovery heights vision takes the form of a 39-storey tower housing the city’s first five-star hotel alongside a 2,800 space conference centre, rooftop skybar, serviced apartments, offices, a visitor centre and retail.
Edward Wighton, director of operations, said: “Our next step is to move towards a formal planning application and in order to do that we need to carry out various investigations of the site itself from an engineering perspective and make sure the conceptual building can be made a reality.
“We will then move towards detailed design in terms of the architecture.”
The complex is being marketed as the ‘Sydney Opera House of Scotland’ and would rise to an impressive 141m (462ft), dwarfing Kengo Kuma’s recently completed V&A Museum.
Investors are now being sought to back the ambitious vision.
