The Central Waterfront is the focal point of the project which has involved the demolition of bridge ramps, roads and buildings, which previously separated the city centre from the waterfront.
In their place, a new grid iron street pattern, green civic space and attractive boulevards reconnects the city with the waterfront to produce a stunning space that will be dominated by the award-winning V&A Dundee.
The V&A Dundee (due to be open in September 2018) will be the only design museum outside of London and expect to attracts visitor numbers in excess of 275,000 annually.
The rail station is being rebuilt to provide a modern arrival point with a 120 bed hotel above.
New hotels, commercial, leisure and residential outlets are required to support the expanding city and new development plots have been created.
Almost all of the Central Waterfront land is owned by Dundee City Council.
