Plans submitted for 136 homes in Craigmillar

CCG and Cooper Cromar Architects have submitted plans for a new 136-home development in the Craigmillar area of Edinburgh on behalf of Places for People.

Consisting of one and two bedroom apartments spread across a series of five blocks, the new development will be constructed upon the site of the former Lidl supermarket.

Positioned to form active streetscapes with shared surfaces the scheme will be arranged around a central amenity space and landscaped ‘buffer zones’ of hedging and planting providing a physical barrier between homes and public areas. Cyclist and pedestrian routes will also be provided alongside a play zone.

CCG has extensive experience of delivering homes in Craigmillar. In 2016, CCG completed ‘The Schoolhouse’, an award-winning mixed tenure development constructed upon the site of the former Niddrie Mill Primary School consisting of 32 private sale properties in a mix of apartments and terraced houses and 34 apartments in a mix of social and mid-market rent including 28 delivered on behalf of Places for People.

A further 305 properties will be delivered as part of the Craigmillar Town Centre Masterplan with 111 homes soon to be handed over for Dunedin Canmore this summer and 194 presently being constructed for the City of Edinburgh Council which are due for completion in 2020. A further 75 properties are also being constructed on behalf of the council on Greendykes Road which is due for completion in 2019.
