Whiteburn - Parkview
Whiteburn Portfolio: Parkview Regeneration Development, Dundee
Regenerating a Characterful 19th Century Landmark
The Parkview project was a rare opportunity to acquire a magnificent and well-known building in the sought after west end of Dundee. The large grounds offer a park-like setting. While the exuberant Scots Jacobean former industrial school takes centre stage in terms of architecture, the elevated position of the homes earns them stunning panoramic views across the River Tay.
Working with multi-award-winning architects Page Park, the vision was to carefully restore and convert the 19th Century hero building. Then to take cues from that building to generate new and equally bold and impressive homes via the demolition of the tired 1970s accommodation block.
Being faithful to the intention of the original building and grounds, but boldly reworking it around the 21st Century people who would inhabit it.
There are landscaped gardens with a park-like theme, communal courtyards, with a canopy uniting the past and present of the former school building, and radical new linear buildings inspired by the towers and scale of the historic school.
And all designed with a consideration for context and an eye for fusing materials such as local stone, timber and contemporary zinc.
We were delighted to be awarded a Commendation by Dundee Civic Trust for contribution to the city townscape, and a Commendation from the Saltire Society as well as Renovation of the Year 2015 in the Scottish Home Awards, and Apartment of the Year 2016 in the Homes for Scotland Awards

We’re delighted with the new home. The finish is lovelyLea and Roger – Caerlee Mill
I highly recommend for heating/insulation… but also the house being flooded with light. I love the big windows and it’s wonderful to have a really well insulated house and yet not compromise on having big windows, allowing light to flood inKay – Caerlee Mill
Throughout the process the quality of information supplied and standard of service from the whole team at Caerlee Mill has been excellent. We expected a quality home and we’ve not been disappointedJim and Jennifer – Caerlee Mill
We’re so happy with our new home 🙂 The build quality is superb, the storage is excellent and we love that we can see the hills from every one of the great-sized windows. Alan and I particularly like the look and feel of Caerlee Mill because it’s not a typical big, new-build estate. It has a unique style that’s semi-industrial and the house exteriors are all a bit different, which we loveAlan’s Family – Caerlee Mill
In terms of standout features, we love the use of space, the use of natural light is amazing, and the practicality of the layout means every space is maximisedLindsey – Caerlee Mill
My favourite thing in our new home is the kitchen – it is where I seem to spend most of my time! – and it’s finished to such a high standard….I have got to say I love itAlly and Dan – Caerlee Mill
Stand-out features are “The warmth and light. The house is well designed so there’s lots of light coming in. Our main room is north facing and worried it would be a bit dark, but there are plenty windows and lots of light coming inAlistair and Helen – Caerlee Mill
Friendly service with fantastic communication throughout. The finish quality is excellent and the aftercare service has been exceptional.Janette – Ashludie House
I am so pleased with my apartment. From the moment I walked in it had the wow factor. My friends and family all comment on how modern and amazing it looks. I always look forward to getting home to seeing the grand entrance hall and settling down in my open plan living space, looking out my bay window.Karen – Ashludie House
The flat has exceeded expectations in terms of design, quality of fittings and particularly its outstanding vistas in all directions. It has genuinely earned a ‘wow’ response from all our visitors. The development is set in beautifully landscaped grounds and has excellent transport links with key resources within the city. Our contacts with the development company and the contractors at all levels have been both effective and cordial. We are happy to recommend Whiteburn.Ian and Isobel – Parkview, Dundee
We purchased a property from Whiteburn in February 2016. We were attracted to the site by the high quality of the work clearly visible when passing the site. The attention to the appearance of the completed areas of the site despite the ongoing work clearly showed an attention to detail sadly lacking on most developments. The property is well designed and offered a high specification apartment in a well planned environment. I have found Whiteburn to be a very professional organisation who have produced a high quality construction backed up by a very helpful, courteous Customer Care Staff.Iain – Parkview, Dundee
It has been a pleasure to work with Whiteburn, who have an obvious passion for not only creating beautiful places to live, but for also making a positive impact on the wider context in which they build. Their ambition to convert a much loved, but neglected Dundee landmark has brought a new lease of life to the building as well as the surrounding neighbourhood and their attention to detail and care for the end user has provided a valuable addition to Dundee’s housing stock.Neil – Page / Park Architects – Architects for the Parkview Development, Dundee
