Twin build to rent scheme to transform Canonmills

Residential developer HUB has followed up plans for residential development at Beaverhall House, Canonmills, with a declaration of intent for a neighbouring site at 23-27 Dunedin Street.

Led by O'DonnellBrown architects the project team has identified two industrial buildings for mixed-use redevelopment, providing a range of homes and commercial space alongside amenity and open ground.

Delivered for the burgeoning build to rent market these homes would incorporate active ground floor uses to improve the street environment.

In a statement, the developer wrote: "HUB is also exploring opportunities to redevelop the adjacent building, Beaverhall House, to provide a mixed-use scheme, including new homes and artist space along with new external amenity spaces. We are keen that the schemes have their own architectural design but work in harmony together to complement the local area."

A formal planning application is to be filed in March next year.

I really hope this gets canned or at the very least the portion containing Alien Bloc is removed from the proposal. I can't think of a worse way to "complement the local area" than by razing the only bouldering centre within the limits of the city by-pass.

Way to go guys. Amazing idea.
