Dundee Waterfront

About The Dundee Waterfront

The £1 billion transformation of Dundee city waterfront, which encompasses 240 hectares of development land stretching 8km along the River Tay, is a strategic, focussed and forward-looking 30 year project (2001-2031) that is propelling the city to international acclaim. The area is divided into five focussed zones: Riverside; Seabraes; The Central Waterfront, City Quay and Dundee Port.


The V&A's new £45 million design museum, V&A at Dundee, is due to be complete 2016. Hotels, businesses and retailers are reaping the rewards of the ongoing city transformation while expectant of significant growth potential as a further 7,000 jobs are created through the Dundee Waterfront project.

Opportunities for developers, investors and a wide range of business ventures still exist in what is shaping up to be one of Western Europe's most extensive and transformative waterfront projects and one of Scotland's biggest waterfront regeneration.

The Dundee Waterfront development has been ranked as the 3rd most active regeneration project (Planning magazine, April 2013) and is expected to become Scotland's first sustainable community (BREEAM), which will help developers to meet corporate governance obligations while offering the benefit of lower whole life development costs.

Currently in stage 3 of the 30 year project (2001-2031), the city landscape is changing at a steady pace. Nearly halfway through the £1 billion investment has already been committed, many developments have been completed and many are underway. For developers, investors and businesses, there is now an opportunity to take a strategic stake in the transformation of a city.
