Two separate student developments in Dundee have both been granted planning permission.

Gylemuir Limited has received planning to convert land on Brown Street into a block of purpose-built student accommodation for 361 students. Designed by CAG Architects, the development will include commercial floor space and will retain the former mill building's traditional single-storey facade.

Meanwhile, on West Marketgait, the existing Shell garage will be demolished to make way for 173 studio units. The scheme is to be delivered by Crosslane Student Developments UK Ltd and will come equipped with a gym, cinema and study areas. Crosslane is hoping to begin construction in the summer and will appoint a local-based contractor.
