Historic residential development opportunity at the heart of Dundee’s waterfront redevelopment

Custom House, a landmark Grade A-listed Georgian mansion in Dundee’s award-winning Waterfront regeneration area, is being launched to the market by Savills.

Located in the heart of the Waterfront, Custom House offers a unique residential conversion and new build development opportunity for 49 high quality apartments. The 0.94 acre site comprises Custom House and the adjacent car parking area, and benefits from both Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent.

Formerly the Dundee Port Authority headquarters, Custom House was constructed to the plans of architects John Taylor and James Leslie from 1842. The original sandstone building was designed in the neo-classical style and includes Greek Revival detailing, with additions being made in the 1880’s and 1930’s. The property retains a wealth of historic internal features including fireplaces, oak panelling, staircases and a plastered entrance vestibule hall.

Richard Cottingham of Savills said: “Custom House provides a rare opportunity to acquire a landmark building within Dundee’s Waterfront. Whilst of historical significance, it is also a key element of the continuing regeneration of the city centre given its prominent position close to the prestigious V&A Dundee. Its central location, waterside views and approved Planning Permission all combine to create an attractive residential development opportunity.”
