Plans to build a “contemporary” complex of seven flats and a restaurant in Broughty Ferry have been revealed.
Developer Mohammed Bhatti will seek permission from Dundee City Council to build the block of two-bedroom flats on King Street.
Those behind the plans say the feedback has been positive so far, despite the building being modern and in contrast with the rest of a historic conservation area.
Allan Mudie, a partner in Brunton Design chartered architects, said: “We don’t know for sure yet what kind of restaurant will be included in the development, but it will likely be an Indian one.
“The flats will be mid-market two bedroom homes. We were quite heartened that we got positive comments when we posted our plans on social media.
“We had expected difficulties because we’re doing something quite different. The planning department was also quite encouraging when we had initial discussions with them.”
Each flat will have an off-street parking space, as well as bike storage.
A private communal garden space would be created on the third storey level looking over King Street, providing views across the Tay.
The site currently contains a small single storey retail unit, two lock-up garages and a storage yard, along with an area of vacant land.
A design statement prepared by Brunton Design explained: “The proposals aim to deliver a high quality modern development within the historical context of Broughty Ferry that is both sympathetic and considerate of the vernacular whilst creating a new architectural style with which to fuse into the diverse built fabric of the area.
“The ground floor units of the adjacent buildings are occupied by retail units, restaurants and bars with residential units above.
“The design seeks to continue this rhythm by introducing a restaurant on the ground floor with the flatted properties above.”
