Plans revealed for 'Scotland's tallest building' in Dundee

News of plans for Scotland's tallest building on Dundee's waterfront features in today's newspaper round-up.

Scotland's Sunday Post reports that Dundee "could become home to Scotland’s tallest building under new proposals to build a huge complex at the city’s waterfront". It says that developer InverTay Homes "has released their ambitious vision for the 39 floor, 141m tall Discovery Heights development, situated between the V&A and the Tay Road Bridge". The building "would include a conference centre, luxury apartments, a five star hotel, boutique shopping and a Sky Bar", it adds.

The Guardian  reports on a family of "slum landlords" being ordered to pay a total of £250,000 in enforcement fines by a judget for cramming 31 people into a suburban four-bedroom house in north London. It says the London Borough of Brent took action at Harrow Crown Court under the Proceeds of Crime Act. The landlords "earned more than £100,000 a year by squeezing tenants on 'sleeping shifts' into rooms fitted with up to four beds in a house in Wembley, north London", according to the newspaper. 

The Guardian  also reports on a claim by Sports Direct chief Mike Ashley that the High street will be "smashed" by weak spending. Ashley "warned that Debenhams and other big retail names face being 'smashed to pieces' by a savage high street downturn this Christmas as Brexit worries put the brakes on spending".
