Industrial spaces and facilities on this world-class centre will drive the Scottish economy and support global sustainability and R&D. Existing buildings are being transformed, now with further space available for greenfield developments.

Value: £25 million

  • Sustainable mobility and decarbonisation

  • Flexible investment

About the development

Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc (MSIP) involves the repurposing of an existing factory of 70,000 square metres and the creation of a new 20,000-square-metre development/investor proposition to form an Innovation Parc. This is an industrial regeneration project focused on sustainable mobility and decarbonisation.

MSIP is being developed and marketed by a public-private joint venture partnership, Michelin Scotland Innovation Parc Ltd., whose partners are Michelin, Scottish Enterprise and Dundee City Council.

The Innovation Parc incorporates the entire former Michelin Tyre Factory and the intention is to re-purpose the buildings and complex to form the Innovation Parc (with selective demolitions and additions).

The 'Green Space' is within the Innovation Parc and is currently used as recreational open space. However, it is proposed to work towards developing 10 'high spec' buildings of around 2000 square metres each. This is meant to accommodate potential end users and occupiers who want to be associated with the Innovation Parc, but either do not wish or are not able to be accommodated within the existing buildings.

MSIP will also be a hub for learning and training in green transport. Scottish Enterprise has announced a plan to invest £2.1 million opens in a new window  to deliver a Skills Academy and innovation labs on the site, with a curriculum provided by Dundee and Angus College. 

Investment opportunities

£25 million is being sought initially to be invested in the 'Green Space' – an area identified for new Class 4 (Business) and Class 5 (General Industrial) sustainable buildings to accommodate end users and occupiers who wish to co-locate with other sustainable mobility and decarbonisation businesses, but who cannot or do not wish to use the existing retained buildings.

Flexible debt and equity investment is being sought to help develop the 'Green Space'. This is an early stage investment opportunity and a partnership approach is anticipated.
