Site 17 Development Opportunity

A proposal of application notice was published in January 2019 for the future development of site 17. The development has been described as: a mixed use residential development incorporating bar/restaurant, public and support spaces and commercial units. The notice has been submitted by Structured House Group.

Please note that a proposal of application notice is not a planning application – instead this indicates a period whereby developers will refine their development proposal in light of any information received, with a view to submitting a planning application for consideration by Dundee City Council at a later date.

The notice can be viewed on the Dundee City Council planning portal by using the reference 19/00040/PAN.

Site 17 Development Site

Site 17 is situated between South Commercial Street and the Apex City Quay Hotel. To the North is the Historic Port of Dundee Customs House and the Dundee Holiday Inn Express.

This site is considered suitable for developments of up to six storeys in height and ideally suited to commercial, office or hospitality/exhibition and conference services.

Separating the building from the Tay Road Bridge and South Commercial Street is an area of open space containing a pond which offers the building a high quality landscaped setting in an otherwise urban city centre environment. The pond forms part of a wider Sustainable Urban Drainage scheme. Vehicular access for servicing will be required to be achieved from the south-east.


To assist developers, a series of supporting documents are being produced which offer more detailed technical, design and planning guidance. These are:
