Unicorn picks Dundee’s top property sales team for landmark, waterfront building
Thorntons continues its successful relationship with Unicorn Property Group and City Quay, Dundee.
Unicorn Property Group has selected Thorntons Property Services of Dundee, to act as sales agents for its flagship development, the Clocktower, at City Quay Dundee.
The Clocktower, with a GDV in excess of £4m for 12 highly specified apartments, is a landmark building, clearly visible across the city. Unicorn is aiming the Clocktower at high net worth individuals from the Dundee’s industry & scientific entrepreneurs and at the frequent visitors to the many attractions to be found in and around Tayside. It is a world class development for demanding, global customers.
George Solley, Director of Property Sales at Thorntons Property Services said: “This is a one-off. I am stunned by the specifications that Unicorn has built in as standard and I am convinced that the Clocktower will be highly sought after – it is a type of accommodation that Dundee has never had in the city centre before. It is the kind of accommodation the waterfront deserves.”
Tim Allan, director of Unicorn, said: “Our successes at City Quay are due to the area’s potential and to our design interpretations of each site’s best use. There are so many different sized opportunities here: the railway transit sheds which so impressed the British Council for Offices; DundeeOne; the Harbour Chambers building; the residential sites on the south side of Victoria Dock; the stunning Chandlers’ Lane townhouses and, of course, the Clocktower. I am convinced that, with the changes in Dundee’s waterfront and the coming of the V & A at Dundee, the Clocktower apartments will be amongst the most sought after in the whole of Scotland in years to come. We have already fielded many enquiries from canny investors who clearly recognise this.”

Marketing statement: The Clocktower continues Unicorn’s ethos of building unique homes in unique locations. Unicorn is of the strong belief that the regeneration of Dundee’s waterfront and the coming of the ‘V & A on the Tay’ will make these apartments some of the most sought after in Scotland in years to come.
They are aiming the Clocktower both at global high net worth visitors to Scotland and to high net worth individuals living in the city centre and enjoying the renewed, confident atmosphere of the regenerated docks. Ninety per cent of Scotland’s cultural and sporting highlights are within an hour and a half drive of Dundee, and many of the iconic golf courses are nearby and the automated, hydraulic stacking car ports are designed for high net worth individuals to be able to leave their prestige car, securely ready for their own use having flown into nearby Dundee airport.
