Appeal to investors
Dundee Waterfront roadshows for business
A number of events are planned to attract investors and a wide rang of businesses, said Allan Watt, Dundee Waterfront Project Director.
“We are also pleased to say that Proposal of Application Notices (PANs) have just been received for sites 2 and 6 for a variety of mixed-use developments,” he said.
In addition to the £80m V&A Museum of Design Dundee, other major investments driving the development include a new railway station with hotel and retail space; expansion of Dundee Port, and the creation of a marina.
The Scottish Government is investing £63 million of growth funding under the Growth Accelerator Model (GAM).
Committed investment in the Waterfront project has now passed £750m, and includes five flagship private sector investments announced earlier this year, and the opening by the Queen of a city centre park, Slessor Gardens.
Around 156,000 square metres of prime land in the central waterfront is now “shovel ready” and available for mixed use development.
Mike Galloway, executive director of city development with Dundee City Council said: “The invitation to engage with the Dundee Waterfront project is a rare blank canvas development opportunity for businesses and investors.
“We are keen that more of Scotland’s entrepreneurs and investors help us shape the development of this city with their ideas and business expertise.”
The first roadshow is in Aberdeen on 9 November, followed by Edinburgh (morning) and Glasgow (lunchtime) on 23 November.
