A former nightclub in Dundee city centre could be turned into a café and flats.
Plans lodged with Dundee City Council would see the site at the corner of the Seagate and St Andrews Lane – once home to Liberty nightclub – transformed into a “quality accommodation” made up of eight three-bedrooms flats.
The applicants behind the proposal also hope to create a ground-floor coffee shop.
The bid now rests with Dundee City Council’s planning department.
Currently, the building is made up of four floors of separate nightclub venues.
The architect working on the plans, Jon Frullani, believes the presence of the bus station means here is a market to attract more footfall from the city centre into the Seagate.
Mr Frullani has worked closely with the developers on the project and said approving the application would be a positive step for the area due to a downturn in the night-time economy.
He said: “We have now lodged the plans with the council’s planning department.
“Our intention is to make the Seagate a better place by creating more quality accommodation in line with the waterfront regeneration.
“At the moment, there is potential for the eight new flats to either be rented or bought.
“It is our intention to improve the image of the building with the introduction of a pavement café and an active frontage.”
Mr Frullani said that a departure from late-night venues traditionally associated with the area counter the decline in the late-night economy in the Seagate.
