Specialist build-to-rent developer PLATFORM_ has obtained planning consent from the City of Edinburgh Council to go-ahead with 453 apartments at Bonnington Road Lane.
Built, let and managed in-house the properties will rise on an urban site stretching from the former Bonnington Resource Centre to a recently demolished John Lewis depot and includes a mix of flats, duplexes and studios - all with an on-site concierge and dedicated maintenance staff.
Designed by jmarchitects with Hirst and Harley Haddow 25% of available properties will be classed as affordable with a range of communal amenity spaces such as a shared lounge, roof terraces, a bike cafe, workshop and gym also provided.
A spokesperson for PLATFORM_ said: “The development will offer residents flexibility on a wide range of housing needs. The project will support the delivery of regeneration within the local area.
“Our key aim is to create quality, sustainable, and responsibly managed properties and we are looking forward to delivering this for Edinburgh.”
Complementary ground-floor retail and commercial space will also be offered for use by residents and start-up businesses. A pocket park, pedestrian priority route linking Bonnington Road Lane to Anderson Place and extensive tree planting will round out the list of interventions.
In 2019 PLATFORM_ obtained planning consent for a 498-home tower at Central Quay, Glasgow, which has yet to break ground
