Ex-Dundee College building with pass marks up for sale

A former Dundee College building with panoramic views over the city and Tay Firth has been put up for sale.

The building, which dates back to 1970, has planning permission to build over 100 apartments, a cinema, gym and café after plans were approved in 2018.

Located on 30 Constitution Road, the site operated as Dundee College of Commerce for 41 years – having been disused since 2011. The 2.26-acre area has since secured planning consents for conversion into residential use, with redevelopment proposals said to have largely maintained the current structure of the building with the intention of adding ten floors of accommodation and amenity space.

Property firm JLL and J&E Shepherd are marketing the building on behalf of the building’s owner, Whiteburn.

Makela Milne, associate director at JLL, said, “30 Constitution Road lies in an established residential area, within walking distance of the City’s universities, restaurants, cafes and shops. It is also close to the train station and new V&A Museum, making it a prime location for residential redevelopment of scale and significance. Dundee is an attractive place to live, work and study in, and we expect to see good interest in the site, particularly as Dundee continues to benefit from significant investment and regeneration of the city centre.”
