The development consisted of the erection of a new shell for the fit out of a new drive thru coffee retail unit for Starbucks. The development is located to the south of Fulton Road, which is situated to the west of Dundee. Access to Fulton Road is gained via Myrekirk Road (east of site) via the roundabout from Kingsway West (A90) (south east of site). The site is surrounded to the north by various commercial and industrial premises that are all accessed from the busy Kingsway West that passes south of site. To the west lies an area of vacant land earmarked for future development with the NCR industrial facility located beyond. The site was chosen due to its strong visual presence on the route of the Dundee outer ring road (A90 dual carriageway), which also provides a large volume of passing vehicular traffic. This road is particularly congested at peak traffic times by commuters and people accessing the surrounding commercial premises, however is continually busy throughout the day. To the east Myrekirk Road provides access to the various commercial, industrial and the Asda Supermarket. Fulton Road provides access to various commercial properties and the NCR Building.
Project was delivered on-time and within budget.
