INDEPENDENT hospitality operators in Dundee have called for steps to be taken to ensure the bars and restaurants planned for the city's £1 billion Waterfront development are not dominated by corporate brands. http://www.heraldscotland.com/business/markets-economy/dundee-after-new-wave-of-hospitality-on-waterfront.25243242
The team behind the £1 billion transformation of Dundee Waterfront has released up to 1 million sq feet of prime land across 4 sites for mixed use development in the Central Waterfront area. An additional 500,000 sq ft will then be released across 2 sites in early 2016.
DUNDEE WATERFRONT has been named the “best place” in Scotland in a poll organised by RTPI Scotland and the Scottish Government. The £1billion transformation of the area which will reconnect the city centre with the Tay Estuary and provide space for leisure, residential and commercial activity beat Loch Lomond and the West Highland Way to the title.
A SECTION of Dundee’s new £11m grid pattern of streets at the central waterfront will open to drivers for the first time this weekend. The west part of the southern road has been under construction since February when the old Olympia and Hilton Hotel were cleared to make way for it, and it will open to traffic on Sunday (June 29).
As Dundee’s transformational Waterfront project begins to take shape, city organisations are keen for businesses, particularly those locally based, to take advantages of the many opportunities associated with the £1bn redevelopment.
Unicorn Property Group have announced the latest important letting at their flagship development in the Dundee Waterfront. Affordable housing provider Home Scotland, has taken space on the first floor of River Court, part of Unicorn’s Dundee One development on the banks of the Tay.
