Canalside property proposed for Fountainbridge
September 19 2017
Planning permission is being sought for 43 private and affordable apartments will be built above a ground floor retail unit on the former industrial land
Daryl Teague, director of Glencairn Properties, said: “There’s a higher mix of student, office and proposed private rental sector development in this particular area of Fountainbridge. What are we proposing is to help to create more of a community by establishing increased opportunity for residential ownership in the area.
“We recently held a community consultation and there was a suggestion that the plans could create congestion. We have been extremely careful to strike a balance with parking and are actually aiming to discourage car ownership by potentially incorporating charging points for electric cars and spaces for the city car club. There are only ten spaces in the plans with two of those allocated to the office units.”
Designed by ISA Architecture and design with Rankin Fraser the blonde brick build has been conceived to work with neighbouring tenement properties, with a setback upper level, full height bronze windows and juliette balconies
