Dundee Waterfront is to launch a campaign next week to encourage new hospitality businesses to open in the city’s rapidly developing central waterfront area. With the £1 billion Dundee Waterfront project now more than half way to completion and V&A Dundee progressing well, the city urgently needs new hospitality businesses to service an extra 300,000 visitors per year.
DISTRICT 10 at Seabreas, Dundee, the first commercial building constructed from shipping containers in Scotland, achieved a clean sweep of the Dundee Institute of Architects Awards.
THE FINAL section of the North boulevard at Dundee’s Central Waterfront is set to open on Monday (November 17). In order to tie in with the existing route and lay the final road surface a section of the South Marketgait eastbound carriageway will be closed from 6am on Saturday (November 15) to 6am on Monday (November 17).
The V&A’s first ever Game Designer in Residence, Sophia George, will today (Friday 24 October) launch a brand new iPad game inspired by the work of William Morris. The new game takes its title, Strawberry Thief, from a William Morris furnishing fabric on display in the V&A’s Britain 1500-1900 galleries. The game enables the user to sketch and colour the famous pattern by flying a bird – the strawberry thief itself – across their iPad screen.

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.
