Scotmid extend Edinburgh store densification drive

Scotmid Cooperative and Manson have extended their partnership with submission of plans to overhaul a store at Leven Street, Edinburgh, hot on the heels of plans for a sister store at Gorgie Road.

The mixed-use plans will create a 9,680sq/ft ground floor retail unit with a mix of eight flats above opposite the King’s Theatre.

The chosen design response seeks to repair the street scene with a new sandstone clad building of between three and four storeys with a part-pitched mansard style roof housing two duplex flats.

Detailing their design development Manson wrote in a statement: “At the third storey level the roof form changes to a pitched roof with dormer style windows. This change in form responds to the strong existing dormer style windows, while also introducing a new material which reflects the traditional use of slate, lead and zinc.”

A projecting retail frontage at ground level will meet the street through curtain wall glazing and aluminium with a galvanized steel access gate protecting the current service access.

The scheme will repair a streetscape damaged by the demolition of tenements in the 1950s
