Dundee is a spot to keep an eye on right now. Exciting projects and regeneration are happening all across the Design City. With a mix of extraordinary history and modern twists, there is plenty to be excited about. Of course, the V&A museum is creating much buzz in the most creative of cities.
We love being part of it!
The regeneration will attract new business and jobs to the city. Bringing space options for all sizes of businesses, from large corporates to entrepreneurs. In this blog, we’ve picked five spaces ideal for an office on the Dundee waterfront.
Flour Mill Dundee
Just a block away from the waterfront based in achingly cool Commercial Street, mere steps from the city centre. The Flour Mill Dundee is a building dating back to the 1800’s that we’re lovingly renovated into a co-work and office community. We’re taking great care to keep the heritage of the building intact. So we’re trying hard to source original or salvaged materials. As a result, each day brings a new find as the renovations move on. These are being preserved as design elements so we can create a funky and creative space.
The design will foster networking and collaboration with co-working and office spaces working on a membership basis. Our aim is to support entrepreneurs and small businesses on their journeys by allowing them to grow, and providing office suites for more established businesses.

Robertsons secured a deal to build a £15.5 million office block adjacent to the V&A museum. The building will be five floors high. With office space and commercial units. Part of the transformation of the waterfront, the Dundee City Council hopes that this building will attract blue chip companies to the area, creating jobs and opportunities for the city.
This development hasn’t come without controversy. Some residents questioned the location of the project. Which some felt would obstruct the stunning views of the waterfront area V&A from the city centre.
Furthermore, its not quite ready with the building due to be finished in February 2019.
Part of the City Quay development, Waters Edge is an exciting and cool development by Chris Van der Kuyl and Paddy Burns, founders of 4J studios. The project will convert the old Shed 25 into a dynamic working space. This project is full of modern twists to encourage collaboration and innovation. The space includes office spaces, co-working and a restaurant. With tech minds comes tech space, therefore it will include some nifty technologies that can be controlled using your smartphone.
Water’s Edge are now taking enquiries for their space.
Recently taken over by Jute Properties, Dundee One is based right on the waterfront next to the Tay Bridge, just a five-minute walk to the city centre. Modern, fresh and bright, probably ideal if you want an office with views and light! There are smaller commercial spaces to rent on the ground floor of the building.
They are keen to do their part for the planet, so the building has placed an emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability.
Dundee One is currently taking enquires for space.
With a different take on office space, the District 10 “building” is constructed from recycled shipping containers at three floors high. As a result, it has an edgy Tetris design, with offices and meeting rooms aimed at creative early stage businesses in the city.
Based in Seabraes Court near the Dundee waterfront area, this area hopes to be the centre of the creative industries. Its in good company, close to the V&A museum and the universities.
District 10 is run by Scottish Enterprise with businesses including architects and a luxury baggage company using the space.
