Planners sanction mixed use development of former Edinburgh stables
July 4 2016mixed use development on King’s Stables Road, Edinburgh, prepared by Fletcher Joseph Architects on behalf of Peveril Securities and Campus Development Management.
One of 12 city centre sites singled out for priority development by the council the scheme will see a motley collection of former offices, storage and workshops transformed with 59 new homes, an arts facility, 92 bed hotel, a 167 room student accommodation block and ground floor retail.
Charles Vyvyan from CDM said:“This is an exciting mixed use development which is proving very attractive to potential residents and occupiers alike, and will revitalise this neglected part of the city centre. This part of the Grassmarket is not viewed in a particularly attractive light and our exciting proposals will breathe much-needed life into this part of the Old Town providing residential flats, a hotel, student accommodation, and facilities to accommodate and promote the arts.”
Central to the cultural aspect of the scheme is an inner courtyard which will be given over to an arts-led hub, intended to become a key space for festivals and a destination in its own right.
