Plans to build houses on Fairmuir Road hang in the balance after the developer was forced into administration.
McGill Homes, a sub-division of McGill & Co Ltd, was placed into administration last week, days after the main company.
Permission was granted by Dundee City Council to demolish disused factory buildings and construct two detached and six semi-detached homes in May 2018.
McGill Homes was fully incorporated two months later.
The application to build the housing development had been submitted to the local authority by KDM Architects on behalf of McGill Homes.
The Tele reported last week that McGill Homes had not been placed in administration following the collapse of McGill & Co with the loss of more than 370 jobs.
However, this has now changed.
William Duncan Business Recovery has been appointed as the administrator.
The future of the Fairmuir development remains uncertain.
Senior insolvency administrator Martin McGrellis said: “We are still gathering information from the directors – they have 11 days to give notification.
“Once we have the statement of affairs, which lists the assets and liabilities, a notification could be put out for interested parties to purchase the development.”
He added: “We understand one plot of land was previously purchased on Fairmuir Road and there were plans to build homes on it.
“After the value is assessed, we’ll be able to find out if there is any value for creditors.”
McGill & Co was placed into administration by KPMG on February 1.
Staff were made aware at a meeting at the city’s Apex Hotel.
Established in 1981 as a specialist building contractor, the company employed more than 400 people across Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
