Salamander Place regeneration potential outlined
January 16 2019
Comprehensive Design Architects have brought forward an application for a fifth phase of 155 homes at Salamander Place in Edinburgh on behalf of Teague, Miller and Cruden Homes.
Following a proposal for planning in principle for 600 homes at the former bottling plant the applicatiuon brings forward detailed design for the next phase of construction with delivery already underway on the first four phases.
This masterplan calls for a series of north/south linear blocks fronting a linear park and allotments, accessible from a newly formed street and shared surface secondary routes.
Outlining their approach in a design statement CDA wrote: “Within Phase 5+ the most western building was envisioned as a ‘marker’ building, terminating the boulevard between Phases 1&2 (delivered by Teague) and 3&4 (Cruden) and signifying the end of the urban area.
“Whilst this apartment block comprises seven storeys. The remainder of this phase consisted of smaller units providing a mix of accommodation including family housing, all of which are no more than three storeys high.”
In addition to apartments phase five will incorporate a mix of townhomes and colony-style houses.
Phase 1 of Salamander Place is expected to complete this year.
