V&A at Dundee

The Central Waterfront

It's not just a building that sits on the harbour, but it somehow appears to sit within it and within the land as well.
- Hannah Lawson, 2011 WAN Awards judging panel

Site preparation is underway and due to complete in 2016. The building as the waterfront project is working towards achieving BREEAM status.

The plot will be 6,230 sqm.

The Central Waterfront, a new street layout extending from the city centre down to the waterfront, and the iconic V&A at Dundee building stretching out over the water, our new waterfront will be a clear statement of our position on a global scale.

The rail station will be modernised and a new civic space for use by all residents, visitors and major events will stretch from the Caird Hall down to the river.

The value of this ambitious £1billion project, which will completely change the lasting impression of the city on visitors, has been recognised by the world’s most famous museum of art and design, the V&A at Dundee. The excellent opportunity provided by the waterfront was one of the leading factors that influenced their decision to work with Scottish partners to establish the V&A at Dundee. The stunning £45 million centre for design has been described as the anchor building on the newly developed waterfront and will help to boost our position as a major UK city, business centre and visitor attraction.
