GREENDYKES PHASE 1, EDINBURGH

Greendkykes Phase 1, Edinburgh

Housing development for Greendykes North in Craigmillar. Housing includes 1/3 Townhouses and 2/3 Apartments. Tenure to be 75% Private, 25% Social Housing with 90 houses in total.

The flats and houses were designed to conform to an Urban Design Masterplan prepared by Cadell 2.

A major feature of the design and masterplan is the townhouses are accommodated along a Home Zone street while the flats are grouped around the perimeter of the development. Social Housing for the elderly is provided in secure, lift accessed flats at a key corner location close to public transport and the proposed tram extension line.

Complies with HFVN and SBD for both Private and Social Housing.

The development is an excellent result of a happy “marriage” between good architecture and masterplan. The houses are spacious and well-designed, proven to be popular amongst residents and house buyers.
