Up to 500 homes on the way for Ocean Terminal
March 3 2016
Waterfront Plaza would incorporate a mix of flats, town homes and colonies housing following hot on the heels of a 28 storey hotel tower, the latest sign of renewed developer interest in an area that has lain largely dormant since the onset of the 2008 recession.
Craig Lynes, land director with CALA Homes (East), said: “Our proposals for Waterfront Plaza are centred around a pedestrianised high quality public realm through the development linking the Shore area to Ocean Terminal. The plans will positively regenerate the area and relate to the proposed Tram Route along Ocean Drive whilst addressing a strong and unmet demand for high quality new housing in Leith.
“We would like to develop a range and choice of homes on the site, to include apartments, colonies and family homes including the delivery of much needed affordable housing.”
A public consultation on the developing plans is expected in April ahead of a full planning application, potentially paving the way for construction to begin early next year.
