Urban extension to deliver 7,000 homes at West Town
May 12 2022
Located between Ingliston park and ride and the Gogar roundabout the consultation sets out plans by 7N Architects to deliver a 'high-density mixed-use extension to the city, combining employment, commercial and community use within a 20-minute neighbourhood of 7,000 new homes.
Built around the tram line the project is billed as a 'town centre' development mixing flats, colonies and terraced housing for private rent, sale and senior living. A new primary and potential secondary school are also envisaged as is a new public park.
Coordinating the masterplan with neighouring developments at Edinburgh Airport and Crosswinds the net-zero carbon vision will serve nearby employment hubs at the Gyle and Edinburgh Park.
The consultation will be live through to 3 June ahead of a phase one planning application this autumn for the first tranche of 2,500 homes.
