S1 Developments has won planning consent from the City of Edinburgh Council to proceed with a landmark waterfront residential scheme at Albert Dock, Leith.
Positioned alongside a potential tram extension Skyliner will deliver 388 build to rent apartments, including 25% ‘tenure blind’ affordable homes, on a brownfield site at Ocean Drive.
Taking the form of four individual blocks rising to heights of between seven and thirteen storeys with 71 on-site parking spots offered.
Luke McClelland, project manager at S1 Developments, commented: “As an Edinburgh-based family company, we are thrilled to see this exciting project given the green light and look forward to breathing new life into a long-neglected area of Leith.
“A key element of the scheme is delivery of a new public boardwalk, served by established cycle routes and the new tram connection, which will provide the local area with a fantastic new amenity space.”
Skyliner has been designed by CDA with funding to be provided by Legal & General, subject to conditions. Completion is anticipated by 2022.
