Designs for Dundee’s Waterfront Development04/09/19
Dundee City Council are to invite proposals for a new unique space bringing art, technology and play together at Dundee’s waterfront.
The whole plot will consist of an interactive play-park, water features, active travel hub and an urban beach.
Councillor Alan Ross, Convener of the Council’s City Development Committee said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for Dundee to further embrace our UNESCO City of Design status and showcase a state-of-the-art interactive park in a highly popular part of the city.
“The development of the water front in Dundee is important in continuing to attract tourists to our city, and is further evidence of our city’s exciting transformation.”
Prospective developers will be invited to submit proposals to Dundee City Council, ahead of a tender report for the main works brought to City Development Committee in December.
The play-park design winner will be decided by representatives from Dundee City Council, Abertay University, Dundee University, St Andrews University and V&A Dundee.
As part of the tender report, the City Development Committee will be asked to approve the successful winner of the design competition to take forward the design of their proposals.
