Corstorphine mixed use proposal progresses to planning
June 26 2018
Mactaggart & Mickel are advancing plans to redevelop a row of redundant retail units at St John’s Road, Corstorphine, in order to advance a mixed-use development comprising 32 flats above 15,000sq/ft of commercial space.
A public consultation has already taken place to firm up outline plans with Michael Laird Architects authoring a planning application in the near future to bring the £15m development a step closer to being delivered.
Mactaggart & Mickel director said: “We listened and took on board many of the comments that were made and have incorporated them in the plans that we’re now submitting.
“The site is one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after locations and we believe that our proposals reflect and respect this. More housing is needed in the area, and all over the city, and we really believe that our development would transform the site, bring new retail mix and create a destination in an active and thriving community.”
An active retail frontage will be presented to St John’s Road by the new development with stone-built flats above more in-keeping with the town centre locale.
