Tram link opens the door to hundreds of Port of Leith homes

Forth Ports has shared early-stage plans for a waterfront neighbourhood at The Port of Leith comprising 337 homes, 224 sq/m of commercial space and retail.

Harbour 31 is the subject of an application for planning in principle by CDA to redevelop a former dockyard with a range of apartments spread over four separate plots, all connected by a new boardwalk.

Topping out at eight floors the new housing will be served by a newly extended tram network and a new active travel route will connect Bath Road to Ocean Way.

Pamela Smyth, chief legal and property officer, of Forth Ports Group, said: “At Harbour 31 we want to create a vibrant new quarter for people to live and work in, as new green jobs come to Leith. The port is transitioning into Scotland’s largest renewables hub and, coupled with the benefits which will be unlocked as part of the Forth Green Freeport, Leith will be completely regenerated."

Homes will be made available at a mix of tenures including affordable, build-to-rent and private sale.

Oh. Underwhelming. But good to see CDA resurrecting the barcode facade from 1998.

I often wonder why so much modern architecture is awful and then you see CDA are involved
