Historic Dundee waterfront residential opportunity offered

THE A-listed Custom House in Dundee’s Waterfront regeneration area is being offered to the market by Savills.

The Georgian mansion is described as offering a ‘unique’ residential conversion and new build development opportunity for 49 apartments. The 0.94-acre site comprises Custom House and the adjacent car parking area, and benefits from both planning permission and listed building consent.

Formerly the Dundee Port Authority HQ, Custom House was constructed to the plans of architects John Taylor and James Leslie from 1842. The original sandstone building was designed in the neo-classical style and includes Greek Revival detailing, with additions being made in the 1880s and 1930s. The property retains historic internal features including fireplaces, oak panelling, staircases and a plastered entrance vestibule hall

Richard Cottingham of Savills said, “Custom House provides a rare opportunity to acquire a landmark building within Dundee’s Waterfront. Whilst of historical significance, it is also a key element of the continuing regeneration of the city centre given its prominent position close to the prestigious V&A Dundee. Its central location, waterside views and approved Planning Permission all combine to create an attractive residential development opportunity.”
