Housing demand drives density with Leith backcourt infill
May 8 201723-home residential development after plans for such were filed by Susan Stephen Architects on behalf of Murapol SA.
This will see the existing warehouse levelled while retaining stone setts for re-use in a proposed private garden area as well as a shared surface parking and storage space.
In their design statement the architects said: “The site in question will deliver a quality residential development in the urban area that is sustainable and accessible delivering a 23-unit apartment block in place of the existing industrial buildings and hardstanding.”
The new build will be stepped back in height to respect neighbouring properties in the Leith Conservation Area with facades composed predominantly of facing brick below a zinc clad top level. A feature staircase meanwhile will be partially obscured behind a perforated metal screen.
