300 affordable homes break ground at West Craigs
March 16 2022
Affordable housing provider Dunedin Canmore, part of the Wheatley Group, will break ground on 300 affordable homes designed by Smith Scott Mullan Associates at West Craigs, Edinburgh, later this month.
Part of a larger residential masterplan by Yeoman McAllister for up to 1,700 homes the project will deliver a mix of houses and flats for social and mid-market rent.
Spread over two plots next to a proposed primary school the homes will be arranged as a series of urban blocks.
In a statement Smith Scott Mullan wrote: "Our areas of input include some of the most prominent sites within the masterplan character zones, creating new urban streets with landmark corners using high-quality materials and architectural features. Homes will be Silver Standard and Housing for Varying Needs compliant with carefully considered soft landscaping. Designed for a diverse mix of families and older people, it will create a new community linked to Edinburgh through green travel corridors."
The City of Edinburgh Council has contributed £23.6m funding towards the project as part of its pledge to build 20,000 affordable homes by 2027.
Phase one homes will be ready for occupation from the end of 2024.
