March 11 2019
Summix Capital have filed plans for a £15m student residential build on Edinburgh’s London Road to deliver 198 beds opposite Meadowbank Stadium and adjacent to a further proposal for 33 flats.
The energy-efficient design will include low flow toilets, taps and showers. On-site cycle storage will discourage car use, with just four dedicated spaces provided.
Architects 3DReid have arranged accommodation across a mix of studio and cluster spaces the accommodation will also provide a community room, common areas and laundry.
A spokesperson for Summix said: “The development serves to address the increasing demand for student accommodation, fulfilling the ambitious growth plans of universities in the city, which are key drivers of the economy. This also helps to reduce pressure on the private housing market as well as delivering a substantial amount in additional expenditure into the local economy.”
