Fresh batch of Edinburgh homes submitted for planning
July 5 2016erect 122 homes at South Fort Street, Edinburgh, by Barratt Homes and the Blake Group.
Designed by EMA Architects the project will further ongoing regeneration in the Bonnington area of the city by providing new frontages to existing streets and a central civic space.
A new pedestrian and cycle route will also be threaded through, improving connections to an existing cycle network to the north.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The architectural style will be contemporary, however design cues and materials chosen will reflect the rich industrial heritage of the surrounding area. Simple solid forms and repeating elements are not unlike the mills, foundries and warehouses once located throughout the Bonnington district. White render and buff bricks also echo these industrial buildings and stone used in traditional Edinburgh tenement.”
EMA submitted a separate application for the south east corner of the site, under separate ownership, back in February.
