A residential tide sweeps Edinburgh's Beaverbank _
October 8 2021
A warehouse operated by a homeless charity on Edinburgh's Logie Green Road is to be swept away in favour of 48 apartments, 25% of which will be affordable.
FourSquare sold the Beaverbank site to Kelvin Properties to permit the charity to relocate to a larger site while permitting redevelopment of the city centre site for much-needed family housing.
A design team comprising CDA architects and landscape architects Oobe have drawn up plans for its replacement, proposing a red-brick block with a 117sq/m communal roof terrace and a semi-enclosed central courtyard.
In a statement, CDA wrote: "Brick rustication and a brick band have been incorporated to create added interest. These natural material colours are in keeping with the masonry character of the area. To complement the brick is a proposed accent material will be used for the recessed top storeys."
Targetting a start on site for June 2022 and completion in 2023, part of a broader residential shift in the area, most recently at Canonmillls Garden.
