A £40 million office, hotel and flat complex at the Waterfront is set to go ahead after city planning chiefs recommended it for approval.
Developers Robertson, together with architects Cooper Cromar, submitted plans to build the proposed development at Site 6 on the Waterfront in February.
The completed complex would deliver 88 new apartments across two buildings and a 150-bedroom hotel.
In a report due to go before councillors on Monday, case officer David Gray says the application has factors which “weighed strongly” in support of the development.
His report states: “The proposals are considered to offer a high standard of development and will contribute to the delivery of the Dundee Waterfront Masterplan to the enhancement of the city.”
However, Mr Gray concedes that the proposals do not include any residential parking, despite the large number of apartments proposed.
He adds: “The Central Waterfront location benefits from excellent transportation accessibility, good local cycling infrastructure and multi-storey car parks within walking distance.”
Objectors to the site, including Dundee Civic Trust, have voiced concerns about the building “dwarfing” the V&A Museum, which the new complex would be directly opposite, and what they claim is “poor quality” design.
However, Mr Gray says the development adopts a “restrained, timeless yet contemporary architectural approach” using quality materials.
The report will be presented to Dundee City Council’s development management committee.
Meanwhile, supermarket chain Lidl has said it is “disappointed” that a proposed new store has been recommended for refusal.
