On the buses
September 1 2008
Originally given the go-ahead by councillors in April 2006 the scheme has been quagmired in legal wrangling over tram contributions.
The scheme will provide 400 homes, predominantly of one and two bedrooms, a quarter earmarked for affordable housing.
Philip Myerscough, managing director of BL Developments, said: "Signing of the (legal agreements] has taken an inordinate amount of time. These things always take longer then you hope, and this is a major development, so inevitably has taken longer. But it's going to be fantastic for Leith Walk and the city."
Construction is to begin in early 2009 for completion in 2012.
