Leith apartment scheme invokes areas industrial heritage
July 11 2016
Occupying the site of the former Edinburgh Roperie and Sailcloth Co. The Ropeworks will offer 600 properties from open plan loft apartments to garden duplexes, terraces and colony houses.
Director Dan Teague commented: “The previous planning consent was of its time so we have brought forward a fresh modern design in conjunction with CDA Architects. We want to create a visionary new place with contemporary high quality apartments and houses.”
CDA director David Hannah added: “The Salamander Place master plan involves the regeneration of a large urban site to create a new set of spaces, buildings and landscaping – including a new landscaped park and extensions to the existing allotments – which together will create a new place in Edinburgh within very easy reach of the city centre.”
The first phase of this project will see 163 flats with undercroft parking built on brownfield land which has lain dormant since 2007 but its backers believe the time is now right to press ahead, with construction expected by April 2017.
