The transformation of a historic Dundee jute mill into a £23 million boutique hotel is only weeks away from completion.
Management have confirmed the redevelopment of the Baxter Brothers site on Constable Street into a Hotel Indigo will be finished on June 4.
General manager William Inglis said the official opening could take place as early as June 24 – and no later than July 4.
The hotel is being run by Focus Hotels Management.
The refurbished jute mill will pay tribute to the city’s heritage and culture, retaining original features of the building including exposed brickwork in its rooms.
Mr Inglis said the finished hotel could be one of the best of its kind in Scotland, adding there has been an “immense responsibility” to keep such an important piece of Dundee’s history alive.
“I can’t think of many hotels in Scotland that have had such a sympathetic and full restoration of this type,” he said.
“It will have a huge place in the Scottish hotel market as well as the Dundee hotel market.”
He added there were about 180 people working on site to make the project a reality and that workers, the majority of whom are locals, felt “an immense responsibility” to “get it right”.
