Plans for the old site of the Alexander Street multis could include a primary school and 75 houses.
Ideas were discussed at Tuesday’s meeting of the Coldside Local Community Planning Partnership.
The site is still vacant following the demolition in 2013 but Hillcrest Housing Association has plans for an NHS building as well as a primary school at the east of the site, and 75 houses and flats in the west of the development.
Plans are at a very early stage, with planning applications yet to be submitted and public consultation to take place.
A spokesperson for the Hillcrest Group said: “At a meeting earlier this week there was a positive discussion outlining proposals, which have yet to be finalised, for the development of around 75 residential units on part of the site of the old multi-storey residential blocks on Alexander Street, which is being developed in partnership with Dundee City Council’s housing division.
“The proposals seek to deliver affordable housing for rent for a range of tenants, including those with varying needs.
“Work is now ongoing in partnership with Dundee City Council to fine tune the site design and accommodation requirements, and to ascertain how each property is best placed on the site.
“It is hoped that the design will receive full planning consent in May 2015.”
A Dundee City Council spokesperson said: “A joint proposal between Hillcrest Housing Association and the council’s housing department to build up to 70 new homes for social rent at the east end of the Maxwelltown site is being discussed.
“The project is in the early stages but this, along with the adjacent development of the new schools, community and NHS facilities, signifies the start of this comprehensive redevelopment that will breathe new life into the communities within the Hilltown.
“More details will be brought forward in due course when planning permission is sought.”
The Alexander Street multis were demolished in 2011, and the current plan to regenerate the area could also see the former site of the Maxwelltown Works transformed into semi-detached and terraced houses, creating hundreds of homes between the two developments.
Proposals for the Maxwelltown site could also see the reinstatement of Elizabeth Street, which had previously been built on.
