Key facts:

Regenerating the waterfront

The Earl Grey development sits on Site 6, a prime location in the Central Waterfront. The five-storey building offers 50,000 sq ft of Grade A office space with two retail units on the ground floor.

This is another important milestone in the transformation of our Central Waterfront. This development and others in the Central Waterfront will not only act as a magnet for future employers but also create opportunities for workers in the construction sector.

– Lynne Short, Convenor of the city development committee, Dundee City Council

Development of Site 6

The office block is part of a broader development on the site which includes 67 apartments for private rent and a 120-bed hotel. The regeneration of the Waterfront hopes to attract more businesses and tourists to this area of the city.

We are absolutely determined to build a fairer and smarter city for the future and take on the challenges that exist for the benefit of our people.

– John Alexander, Council leader, Dundee City Council

In 2020, the project won a BCO Scotland award for best Commercial Workplace.
