The expanding range of development opportunities across Dundee and Dundee Waterfront are to be promoted to the global investor community with the launch of a new investors pack next week.

The new pack is being launched at the 5th Dundee Waterfront Roadshows being hosted in Glasgow and Aberdeen by Ryden.

The investors pack is the latest in a series of digital marketing tools promoting investment opportunities across the city. Other marketing initiatives include a Waterfront App with a virtual tour that provides tours of the sites and the V&A Museum of Design Dundee, plus a range of online design and planning guides.

The investor pack will also be promoted at a series of events to internal and external stakeholders including Scottish Enterprise, SDI, property agents, investors and developers.

Allan Watt, Dundee Waterfront project director, said: “The new investors pack showcases the city and Waterfront to a global audience. We have one of the most exciting investment propositions in Europe, and it is important we share that opportunity as widely as possible. Dundee Waterfront has nearly 1.5 million sq. ft of ‘shovel-ready’ land ready for mixed-use development across 8 sites. We take a partnership approach to development and work closely with investors to progress their proposals.”

  • £40m mixed-use development for the creative sector in Dundee Waterfront
  • £10m development of Dundee Port for the decommissioning market
  • HQ for Scotland’s new social security agency, creating over 700 jobs

  • Dundee was recently tipped by the Wall Street Journal as a ‘hot destination’ for 2018, whilst National Geographic Magazine Traveller section selected the city as one of its ‘Stay at home’ destinations.
