RBS outline residential-led Fettes Campus overhaul
November 14 2016Dundas Street/Fettes Row, on land owned by the banking group.
This will see existing office buildings swept away in favour of a 47,450sq/m residential-led scheme with the potential to include retail, a hotel, care home and offices.
New spaces and connections will knit the development into the surrounding neighbourhood; including a public square off Dundas Street and a pocket park connecting King George V Park.
In their design statemen the architects wrote: “Our 3d images show an indicative approach to the architectural treatment of the buildings. Although we are not applying for a detailed consent with complete building designs, the proposals have been compiled to promote an architectural approach that is befitting of the sensitive context.”
This approach will see existing blocks to the north ‘repaired’ to sit alongside a series of modern free-standing blocks to the south. Intended to be formed form glass and metal panels these would reflect views of the surroundings and add a new layer of history to the area.
