Unite stage public consultation on more Edinburgh student flats
June 27 2014staged a public consultation into its £38m development of 579 beds in Edinburgh’s St Leonard’s Street, presently home to a redundant retail unit.
Proposals drawn up by Allan Murray Architects call for the inclusion of a ground floor retail unit or health centre together with an access pend leading to a central courtyard, which could be utilised as a Festival venue.
This will see the street frontage restored with a variegated profile of discrete frontages framing views of a neighbouring church and Salisbury Crags.
Landscape improvements to the 0.7 hectare site will include tree planting, external seating and raised planters together with the introduction of natural stone paving.
