Craigentinny House sets the scene for 59 affordable homes
Hillcrest Housing Association, working in conjunction with developer Culross, is to deliver 59 affordable homes at Loaning Road, Edinburgh, following submission of a formal planning application.

Designed by JM Architects the project will prospective tenants a mix of tenures within a new build block rising up to six storeys.

Situated next to Craigentinny House the project occupies the site of a former laundry and will be set back from the road to preserve the seventeenth century manor’s kerb impact.

Ryan Fletcher of Cullross said:  “This site raised some complex design challenges which had to be taken into consideration.  I believe that we have managed to come up with a proposal which addresses these challenges and will enhance the area generally.  We are very excited to see this project progress through the planning phase and on to site.”

Work is expected to commence by the winter for completion by summer 2018.
