Developers are hoping work will finally begin next year on transforming a former jute mill into flats and offices.
Plans to turn the old Pentlands Works on Brown Street into a mixed-use commercial and residential development have been on the table since 2014, but have so far failed to win the approval of Dundee City Council.
A revised scheme was submitted last year and is now being considered by planning officers, and developers say they expect their plans to finally be approved.
The application, submitted by Hiddleston and Feist Architects on behalf of Ramsay’s Properties Ltd, proposes creating rented accommodation on the first, second and third floors, while retaining commercial and light industrial use on the ground floor.
Plans for a 60sq/m gymnasium and storage area are also included in the plans.
Ian Hiddleston, of Hiddleston and Feist, said: “We have been through fairly lengthy negotiations with the council.
“We have been informed that we should receive planning permission and listed building consent in the very near future.
“We have still to get a build warrant as soon as we receive the planning permission.”
He added should the plans be approved, it would be another six months before work would begin.
Pentland Works is part of the larger complex of Category A-listed mills known as the Tay Works. The complex has been subject to number of planning applications over the years, all of which have been rejected.
Although some of the ground-floor units remain occupied, parts of the upper floors have started to deteriorate, including roofing and window frames.
Ramsay’s Properties Ltd wants to create six two-bedroom flats on the first floor and second floor, alongside two two-bed maisonettes. The third floor would contain three one-bed flats.
The application promised that changes to the fabric of building, both interior and exterior, are to be kept to a minimum.
It added: “In general, all stone floors will be retained, access stairways continued, window openings retained and roofs made good.
“The flatted accommodation has been designed to retain the maximum visibility of the brickwork arched ceilings within the living room and bedroom apartments, adjacent to the large windows, in order to provide the historical context, both internally and externally.”
