Edinburgh city centre mixed-use scheme is gets the nod
Joint venture partners Mactaggart & Mickel Group, Mactaggart Family & Partners, Millard Estates Limited and Rennick have announced that the application for the demolition of the existing office buildings and erection of a new mixed-use development at Dundas Street has been approved by The City of Edinburgh Council.
The new development, comprising 49 flats with 3 commercial units, amenity space, landscaping, basement level car and cycle parking and other associated infrastructure, was recommended for approval by officers at The Edinburgh City Council and complies with The City of Edinburgh Council’s Local Development Plan.
The development meets the council’s aspirations for 20-minute neighbourhoods by making best use of a city centre site to create much-needed new homes, of which 25% will be affordable, within walking distance of work, shops, bars and restaurants with a bus stop on its doorstep.
The efficient reuse of previously developed brownfield sites is critical to the successful delivery of the new City Plan targets for homes in Edinburgh.
Andrew Rennick, Managing Director at Rennick said, “We are delighted that The City of Edinburgh Council has supported our vision to redevelop this part of Edinburgh in a sympathetic way that will reuse and repurpose an existing development site to deliver an exciting new mixed-use residential development with a host of local amenities adding to the vibrancy of what is already a very desirable location at the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town.”
