Developer Appletree Bond Limited has been granted permission to build 27 apartments in the upper floors on the empty former whisky bond located on the city’s Seagate.

The move has been supported by Historic Environment Scotland.

In a report on the decision to build the flats, Appletree Bond, said: “The proposed works are an acceptable re-use of this listed property. The interventions to the fabric of the building including replacement windows, and internal alterations are acceptable since they will ensure a viable future for this property.”

Dundee City Council has approved the plans on the condition that officers are able to give a final sign-off to the materials Appletree wishes to use in upgrading the exterior of the building, the Evening Telegraph reports.

Applications to renovate the Robertson Bond have been submitted prior to Appletree Bond’s attempt. A similar application to build 28 flats was approved in 1997, and another for 24 was accepted by the council in 2007. However, neither of these applications was taken forward further.
