Below you’ll find a short introduction to Dundee, we’ll be updating this page in the coming weeks and months with fresh information.
Offering its 143,000 residents more hours of sunshine than any other city in Scotland, Dundee is a thriving centre of exciting new business and industrial development on the banks of the River Tay.
Aside from its blue flag status beach, this diverse economy is made up of key sectors that include: biotechnology, retail, renewable energy, digital media and telecommunications, and is home to three top ten Scottish companies. It is also Scotland’s first Fibrecity, allowing high speed communication between residents and businesses, and has become a hotspot for new investment from business giants such as the Alliance Trust.
ACADEMIC APTITUDE & RENEWABLE INITIATIVES
The city has two Universities, maintaining and enhancing the strong links that already exist between academia and the wider community.
The Universities and Colleges have also created a unique alliance to support the offshore renewable energy potential of the city. The prospects for Dundee in this area are extensive, as researchers explore the potential for wind, marine, hydro, bio, solar and geothermal energy production. There are hopes in some circles that Dundee may become Scotland’s first solar city.
Alongside its prestigious arts and cultural quarter, which boasts the Contemporary Arts centre and Rep theatre, Scotland’s only full-time dance and theatre ensembles, the city is also at the creative heart of the computer games industry.
The city also has a strong heritage in journalism and publishing, which is famous for housing newspaper and magazine companies such as DC Thompson, who published The Beano and The Dandy for 100 years.
As an award winning shopping destination offering 569 retail units in the city centre, Dundee’s infrastructure and public facilities are soon to receive £500 million of investment towards regenerating the cultural quarter and waterfront area.
The vision statement of this project is ‘to transform the City of Dundee into a world leading waterfront destination for visitors and businesses through the enhancement of its physical, economic and cultural assets’.
Already the old railway and shipyard area has been transformed into a centre for digital and creative industries, offering office space and a fully fledged media district for the city.
Japanese architects have also completed designs for the new V&A Museum due to be installed by 2015 as part of the waterfront project, which will contribute to cultural and economic growth by showcasing Scottish design.
