Plans have been submitted for an urban beach next to the V&A museum.
Dundee City Council is considering an application for Waterfront Place, which would sit on the banks of the River Tay at the bottom of Slessor Gardens.
Designs were first released as part of an economic summit in the city last year.
If approved, it is hoped work will begin on the site later this year.
The urban beach is one of the final elements of the council’s masterplan for the Waterfront, which would include a cafe as part of a man-made sand area, as well as pine trees.
The initial designs, revealed by the Tele last June, showed a landscaped area with a boardwalk overlooking the Tay.
An amphitheatre has also been proposed as part of the plans, which would allow people to play in an open performance space.
Routes through the area would also allow pedestrian access and cater for people using the National Cycle Network and Dundee’s Green Circular cycleway.
The site is currently being used as a construction assembly area and is expected to be developed following completion of the V&A Museum of Design.
Inspiration for the urban beach was taken from other cities across the world including Paris and Orlando.
The prime site opposite to the V&A will be taken up by AC Marriott Hotel.
A report submitted as part of the application stated: “The design concept behind the proposed buildings at Waterfront Place is for them to be an integral part of ‘the place’, the landscape, rather than either design a landscape and then locate buildings on it, or to design buildings first and then arrange open space around them.
“The aspiration is to create a new piece of public urban realm, a destination, but on approach from the city centre, passing through Slessor Gardens.”
