We appreciate how important the creative industries are to the Scottish economy - so much so that we've only gone and created an awesome new office out of shipping containers on Dundee's waterfront, which is the perfect home for young innovative businesses.
District 10 is a new £1.7 million office development on Dundee’s waterfront constructed from 37 recycled shipping containers - and it has plenty of space for new tenants.
The first tenant to take up residency in one of the shipping containers is luxury performance travel luggage designer, LAT56.
Located at former railway goods yard, Seabraes Yard, the development offers flexible office accommodation, plus meeting and networking space.
The development, formerly a railway goods yard, is designed to meet the needs of Scotland’s early stage creative industries companies and is expected tocontribute up to £10 million to the Tayside economy over the next decade.
The building’s first tenant is an edgy and exclusive bag company called LAT56. Kevin Fox, the award-winning Scottish designer who founded the company said:
"We are excited to be the first company based in Dundee’s newest waterfront development. District 10 will become the new heart of Dundee’s growing creative sector and as a brand with a strong international outlook with a constant need to be cutting edge at the highest level; I believe we are going to thrive in this fantastic location.”
The building can flexibly accommodate up to 15 companies and is already attracting interest from other potential tenants. Do you see yourself taking up residence at District 10?
