Caltongate wins approval
February 7 2008
Mountgrange plc and Allan Murray’s master plan for the disused bus garage in New Street have been vociferously opposed by local campaign Save Our Old Town (SOOT). Mountgrange’s early plans were to bring a new road, to be called Parliament Way, into Canongate and in the process demolish some 1930s stone tenements, but in the approved proposals the existing street line of the Canongate has been maintained.
The £300million Mountgrange investment plans include private and affordable housing, retail, artists studios, a five star hotel and conference centre a large office building and leisure facilities. The scheme is the product of input from a number of different architects including Malcolm Fraser and David Page.
