Overgate Centre
The Overgate Centre is a shopping centre in Dundee, Scotland. It was originally opened in the 1960's but was completely refurbished and some demolition work carried out to demolish the Angus Hotel. The centre was formally reopened in 2000. Throughout the building works a number of store remained open such as C&A and Argos. It is the only single-sided shopping mall in Europe and has a curved glass window spanning the south side of the building looking onto Dundee's City Churches. The mall houses over 60 shops, cafes and restaurants as well as three car parks, two of them multi-story. Its two flagship stores are Debenhams, which is the only store that spans three floors, at the west end opening when the centre opened and Primark at the main entrance on the east side of the mall which opened October 2006 having relocated from a smaller store within the centre.

The £50m expansion
The Overgate is planned to expand in near future, the overgate was given permission in 2006 to expand, including to rebuild over other buildings which include Lidl and many homes, in 2008 Dundee City Council made tenants of flats next to the overgate move out for the expansion, alltough all of the residents were relocated. The buildings/flats next to the overgate have started being demolished as of May/June 2009. The plan is a £50,000,000 expansion to make the mall more than twice its size, including to open more than 50 new shops, hundreds of new jobs and a food court. However nothing has happened yet; it was revealed on the 24th of September 2009 that the plans had been held back, due to the current reccession. Dundee City Council and Lend Lease said they are still behind the plan, however they also said the Overgate was their primary building to help at the moment. Work is to possibly start mid 2013 or early 2014. On December 17 2010, Land Securities took over the running and ownership of the Overgate centre. Lend Lease sold it for 141 million pounds ($220 million.
