CDA push ahead with plans for 100 Granton homes
January 19 2016submitted plans for 100 homes at Waterfront Avenue, Edinburgh, on behalf of Places for People, phase one of a larger 300 home development.
Finished in a palette of white and grey brick with front entrances and balconies defined by a dark grey metal-clad portal frame the scheme seeks to slot into the existing context, defined by Saltire Square.
In their design statement the architects observed: “The corner apartment building will present a strong frontage onto Saltire Square and Waterfront Avenue, and act as the connecting piece between the two terraces of townhouses.
“The primary material used will be a mixture of white and grey brick cladding, with the white brick being used for the seven storey section of the building, and the light grey brick used on the five storey section. Features such as entrance canopies and balcony edging picked out with dark grey metal cladding.
“The recessed balconies will be softened using dark stained timber strip panels. Balcony areas will be finished with galvanised paint finished mild steel balustrades painted dark grey to match the window frames.”
Landscaping work will be undertaken by Rankin Fraser.
