'Anchor' apartment block to round-off Dalmeny masterplan
February 23 2021
Cruden Homes with jmarchitects have prepared plans for an 'anchor' apartment block on brownfield land at Dalmeny near South Queensferry.
16 homes will be built at the junction of Craw's Close and Burdock Road opposite Dalmeny Train Station, joining a significant volume of new-build apartments and houses in the immediate vicinity adhering to an EMA Architects masterplan.
Treating each frontage equally the four-storey block will sit under a pyramidal roof lined with a brick skin to the lower floors with a contrasting white render applied to upper floors.
In a statement, the applicant wrote: "The vision for this site is to complete and anchor this section of the masterplan through the creation of a high-quality building that takes advantage of its location at this junction and is seen 'in the round’."
The accommodation mix includes a variety of one and three-bed apartments with all ground floor units having direct access to private gardens.
