Edinburgh supported living block breaks new ground
June 26 2019
A start has been made on-site with the delivery of 24 supported living homes in Edinburgh at Heron Court, West Bowling Green Street, by Marshall Construction.
Brought forward by Susan Stephen Architects and HBVillages the red brick block will cater for tenants with a range of physical and learning disabilities referred by the city council.
Alastair Sheehan, business development director of HBV, said: “We are delighted to get work started on our first scheme in Scotland and we hope this will be the first of many. We have received tremendous support and encouragement from Edinburgh City Council and the wider community.
“Our development provides the opportunity for local adults in with disabilities to have their own home, but with the added benefit of 24-hour on-site support staff. When blended at the outset with our assistive technology offering, outcomes for tenants are greatly enhanced.”
The project will also improve connections to the Millenium Walkway along the Water of Leith and will include a residents garden.
