Plans submitted to convert former Dundee post office into 90 flats
Chesterfield-based Forester Hall Developments Ltd has submitted plans to convert a former Dundee post office into 90 flats.
The historic building is located on the corner of Meadowside, Constitution Road and Euclid Crescent. The building was built in the 1890s and has three floors, an attic and a basement.
The developer intends to hold two public consultation meetings before full plans are submitted to Dundee City Council. The first takes place between 1pm and 8pm on Friday March 17. The second is from 9am to 3pm on Thursday March 30. They will take place on the top floor of the India Buildings at 86 Bell Street, Dundee.
The building was initially used as Dundee’s main post office, then served the city as a nightclub under the names Circus and London before being sold to Dundee High School in 2013.
The school had planned to convert the building into a £16 million centre for performing and visual arts. However, it was unable to raise sufficient funds for the project and in December 2020 the plans were put on hold. The site was then put on the market for £500,000 in late 2022, The Courier reports.
It has not been confirmed whether the building was subsequently bought, however Forester Hall Developments has now put forward a pre-application notice for the building to be turned into flats.
