News: 15 June 2016Plans submitted for Finavon Street Residential Development, Dundee

This project will see a vacant brownfield site developed to deliver new homes to supplement Abertay’s existing housing stock in Fintry. The proposals promote a range of different property types including semi-detached and terraced houses, flats and maisonettes to help meet the housing demand identified in the area. In addition, a significant number of the units proposed are specifically designed to provide supported living accommodation for individuals with physical and learning disabilities.

The design proposals have been developed with a strong emphasis on understanding and contributing to the existing character of the area, generating a strong development edge that responds to the visual prominence of the site. The architectural approach focuses on creating buildings with attractive simple proportions, generous window sizes and a simple palette of robust materials, resulting in a development with a distinct identity.

Bob Sander, Operations Director for Abertay Housing Association, said: “Abertay is delighted to be able to submit plans to redevelop this former housing site and provide 60 much needed high quality new houses and flats for Fintry which will help to raise its profile and boost the local economy”.

Jon Parry, Associate Architect in Barton Willmore’s Edinburgh office adds:

Barton Willmore is proud to have provided a multi-disciplinary team which has supported Abertay Housing Association in the promotion of this exciting project. The proposals will deliver a strong new western edge to Fintry, with gateway buildings formed at the important routes into Fintry from Fintry Drive and Fintry Road.”
