Waterfront Place is to be constructed at the edge of the River Tay. This extension to the popular Slessor Gardens is expected to commence construction in 2018 with a view to being made available for use towards the end of 2019.
The outline design identifies a landscaped area complete with an urban beach and boardwalk overlooking the River Tay. Raised landscaped mounds echo the coastal geography of dunes: providing a location for a potential cafe facility built into the earth mound as well as informal areas to relax or to host smaller scale outdoor events.
Routes through the site allow for ease of pedestrian access and also cater for cyclists using the National Cycle Network and Dundee's Green Circular cycleway.
