Third phase of Granton Waterfront plans submitted by Places for People

Granton Waterfront Places for People 2Places for People has submitted plans to the City of Edinburgh Council to build 89 new homes by Granton Waterfront.

The development on Waterfront Avenue forms the third phase of a larger scheme of around 600 homes.

Designed by Reiach and Hall Architects, the latest phase of homes have the advantage of extensive views and provide residents with a landscaped courtyard and amenity space.

Granton Waterfront Places for PeoplePlaces for People group development director, Colin Rae, said: “Placemaking is at the heart of what we do as a developer which means we put people first and prioritise high quality design, taking inspiration from the surrounding area and local communities to create safe, welcoming and sustainable new neighbourhoods where people will want to live.

“Waterfront Avenue is a distinctive development that is providing much needed mixed-tenure housing for Edinburgh. Of the 89 homes in this phase, 33 are for affordable rent and 56 will be available for sale.

“Residents benefit from plenty of open space, easy access to the city centre and routes through the site leading to Granton Harbour. The regeneration of the area stalled during the recession, but with these proposals and other planned developments the outlook for Granton Waterfront is very positive.”

Places for People aims to build 2,000 new homes in Edinburgh over the next three years and already has schemes underway in the city such as Urban Eden at Meadowbank, Shrubhill on Leith Walk and The Green at Longstone, as well as 55 Degrees North at Granton Waterfront.
