Craigmillar regeneration continues apace with Greendykes completion
The latest phase in the ongoing regeneration of Edinburgh’s Craigmillar district has taken shape with the completion of a 34 home development by Places for People.

Located within the Thistle Foundation, a conservation village, the Smith Scott Mullan designed scheme links low-rise listed buildings with larger scale contemporary developments in the area.

Forming an urban corner it builds out to the street edge and encloses a central courtyard overlooked by a range of housing types and one designed for disabled people.

Neighbouring streets have been turned into Home Zones and the scheme achieves an Eco Homes Very Good rating with passive design features including airtight construction and a whole house ventilation system.

A solar panel heating system also provides a renewable energy contribution to hot water requirements, resulting in a scheme which exceeds the City of Edinburgh Council’s sustainability standards.
