Refurbished Offices at 18 South Tay Street, Dundee

From company headquarters to multi-occupier developments and refurbishments of historical buildings, our clients trust us to deliver attractive, functional spaces that meet the demands of modern working.

One of our current projects is the refurbishment and reconfiguration of Grade B listed offices on 18 South Tay Street in the heart of Dundee’s Cultural Quarter conservation area. The south-facing property occupies the top floor and attic space of a three-storey tenement building overlooking Tay Square.

The light and airy premises are being fitted out to a modern standard while also being sympathetic to the Victorian character of the building and preserving the building’s heritage.

The property has two different layout/configuration options, offering further opportunity for prospective tenants to tailor the space to suit the needs of their business from the outset.

The subjects represent a great opportunity to secure a stylish and functional commercial office space within one of the most sought-after locations in the city for professional office occupiers.

Contact Westport Property with any enquiries or to express your interest.
