Plan for new flats and serviced apartments in Dundee’s West End given go-ahead

36 Roseangle will be transformed into six serviced apartments.
36 Roseangle will be transformed into six serviced apartments.

An old office block and a private chapel in the West End of Dundee are to be transformed into flats and serviced apartments.

The plans will see the chapel and hall at 34 Roseangle turned into seven flats and the offices at 36 Roseangle into six serviced apartments.

Formosa Developments Limited, alongside architect Michael O’Donnell, believe the plan will see limited physical alterations to the listed properties.

A planning statement lodged alongside the application states the developers will approach the project “sensitively” and “carefully” to ensure the building’s character.

It states: “Other developments at 39 Roseangle, and One Grosvenor, Perth Road, are extremely successful and have lengthy waiting lists of professional people requiring clean, new and high standard accommodation with all facilities included.

“It is not considered that this development would have an adverse effect to the area —  in fact the converse is believed.

“It is considered that the proposal to convert to six apartments is the approach that will
‘sensitively and carefully’ have minimum impact on the character and setting of the building.

“It is felt that converting to the above use would minimise physical alterations to the property and revert it back into its natural layout arrangement.

“This will secure its future and enhance the protected nature of the local architectural

Formation of a new access route will be included in the development with a car parking area and new landscaping.

The report adds that the new parking area will ensure that the notorious problems with on-street parking in the area are not worsened.

It states: “New in curtilage car parking from a new vehicular access will accommodate proposed residential car parking requirements which is a significant factor in this area where on street parking is problematic.

“Initial discussions with the roads department have been supportive.”

The building at 36 Roseangle will retain its central staircase as well as many of its traditional features.

It was previously occupied by the local branch of Tayside Deaf Forum, who were controversially kicked out after it was sold by Edinburgh’s Deaf Action in 2015.

The group had called the building home for over 80 years with secretary Brian Hogan voicing his anger at the decision, which led to the group moving to Sangobeg House in Francis Street.

Deaf Action chief executive Aidan 
McCarry said at the time that the “enormous amount of money” it took to run the 
premises meant it was no longer viable as 
a meeting place.
