"Seabraes" : Dundee's creative media district

Work continues apace on the construction of the first speculative building within Seabraes Yards - Dundee's Creative Media District.

"Seabraes" on Greenmarket, a development by Birmingham-based Foxdown Properties Limited, in association with Scottish Enterprise Tayside, is on target for completion by the end of May.

Totalling 28,370 sq.ft., spread over four floors, this prominently located property offers flexible letting space in Suites from 2,686 sq.ft. specifically designed for Digital Media and Creative Industry businesses for which Dundee is an internationally recognised centre.

Whilst there is on-site parking for 66 cars, Dundee City Council's latest multi-storey car park with almost 600 spaces is nearing completion on an adjacent site. The City's east coast main line Railway Station is a short walk and the Airport, with its scheduled daily direct flights to and from London City, is only 5 minutes drive away.

Letting Agents, Graham + Sibbald, who themselves recently moved to new offices at Greenmarket, report early interest and partner Alistair Todd commented: "In collaboration with Scottish Enterprise Tayside who are heavily promoting Seabraes Yards - Dundee's Creative Media District, discussions are underway with a number of prospective tenants for different parts of this landmark Building and we would hope to be making some specific letting announcement soon."

Scottish Enterprise Tayside operations director Jill Farrell said: "Creative industries are thriving in Dundee and are important for Tayside's economic future. One of our main strategies to encourage further growth in the sector is through developing Seabraes Yards and we are delighted to be working with Graham + Sibbald to attract new businesses to the area and support existing companies to grow in this exciting environment."


Foxdown, no stranger to developing speculatively within Tayside - they have several successfully completed schemes on Dundee Technology Park - also now have available for lease through Graham + Sibbald 'Arbroath Contact Centre' the gateway building to Arbroath Enterprise Park. Extending to 20,500 sq.ft., this purpose-built Contact Centre/Office offers open plan accommodation providing maximum flexibility. Developed with the support of Scottish Enterprise Tayside and Angus Council, the building seeks to capitalise upon the excellent workforce availability within Arbroath and the surrounding Angus towns. An attractive lease package is on offer to qualifying tenants and further details can be obtained from the Letting Agent.
