Dumfries High Street Ltd
Restoring 115 to 117 High Street
Category B + Unlisted in Conservation Area
Midsteeple Quarter is located in the centre of Dumfries and covers a block of the original medieval town plan with main building frontages onto the High Street. The Quarter contains a number of listed buildings and historic closes, although a lot of these routes have been blocked up over the years. Many of the buildings are in poor condition. Over a period of several decades, mainstream market retail and related commercial property market dynamics have led to vacant ground-floor units and unused upper floors with consequential negative impacts on the town centre vibrancy and viability. Taking on the ownership, along with repair and reuse of these buildings, will be key to the regeneration of the wider town centre.
