Proposal submitted for £24m Dundee city centre leisure development
A nine-screen cinema complex, a hotel and residential accommodation are being planned as part of a £24 million leisure development in Dundee city centre.
Ayrshire-based property development company Crucible Alba Group has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice to transform a derelict brownfield vacant site at Greenmarket.
The ‘Greenmarket Leisure Quarter’ proposals also include restaurants, cafes and a public car park.
Michael Smart, development director at Crucible Alba Group, said: “Greenmarket Leisure Quarter is a fantastic opportunity to regenerate a long term vacant site. The plans complement Dundee City Council’s ambitions for the Dundee Waterfront regeneration and will provide an important link between the existing retail city centre offering and the Dundee Waterfront development including the new V&A Museum.
“The development will be Dundee’s first leisure orientated city centre development and will provide a much needed facility for both Dundonians and visitors to the city centre. Discussions are ongoing with a number of big name cinema operators and restaurant companies and an announcement on these will be made shortly.”
The project is expected to create a significant number of jobs during the construction phase and up to 250 permanent posts thereafter.
