A city centre retail regeneration property in Dundee, Scotland.
Originally built in the 1960's, Overgate derives its name from an old Norse word referring to a pathway that encircled the City Churches. Redeveloped by Lendlease from 1998-2000, Overgate is the only single-sided mall in Europe; due to an entire elevation dedicated to to protecting the architectural integrity of the neighbouring Church.
The centre's 60 retail units and 2 anchors are spread over two levels, with clean retail space allowing national and international brands to bring their formats to Dundee, in Scotland.
Overgate was owned and managed by Lendlease at at time when its retail portfolio was transitioning from development to operational properties.
The challenge was to support incoming and early turnover tenants with an effective retail delivery solution that could cover both design and management for teams predominately located in London and the South, whilst executing unit works, handovers and site supervision locally in Dundee.
Vindico provided a retail delivery strategy, content, design, manage and onsite solution for Overgate.
As part of the property's transition from development project to operating property, Vindico re-wrote the design guides and technical criteria and trained centre management technical staff in onsite roles & responsibilities.
A proposed reconfiguration of the centre's F&B offering saw Vindico support the asset management team in the design specification and delivery strategy for a new multi-unit food court.
