Midsteeple Quarter reaches latest milestone

THE transformation of a once derelict building on Dumfries High Street into homes has reached a new milestone.

Scaffolding has been removed from the front of Midsteeple Quarter’s development at 135-139 High Street, with work on its interior now fully underway.

The refurbishment is is the first phase of a long-term vision to breathe new life into the town centre by taking neglected and under-used buildings into community ownership and revamping them into places in which people live, work and visit.

Dion Corbett was one of the Midsteeple Quarter directors on-site this week and said: “It’s great to see the progress being made and to hear about the wider benefits for jobs and the local economy that the work’s creating.

“This is all about realising our community’s ambition to take back control of our High Street and be a catalyst for positive change. We’re incredibly excited to see it taking shape and about the opportunities it is creating for people to live and work in the town centre.

“The comments we’ve heard as the scaffolding has come off have been incredibly positive.”
