WCN Editorial Team 11 Mar 2022 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The City of Edinburgh Council in Scotland has selected a consortium of Graham, Miller Homes and Panacea Property Development to provide a multi-million-pound regeneration housing scheme at Meadowbank.

This consortium, known as Edinburgh Meadowbank Group (EDMB), was chosen by the council’s Finance and Resources Committee to make one of Edinburgh’s “greenest neighbourhoods” by integrating low-car, low-carbon infrastructure with energy efficient homes.

The design and pre-construction will start early next year by EDMB, along with EMA Architects

The construction site is beside the new Meadowbank Sports Centre off London Road.

This mixed-use regeneration programme will feature almost 600 mixed tenure homes for sale and rent, of which at least 35% will be kept affordable.

The project will also include space for commercial and community uses, and a proposed GP surgery.

Focusing on the industrial and sporting heritage, the public realm and landscaping are expected to offer new travel routes through to Restalrig, claimed Graham.

Graham Investment Projects managing director John McDonald said, “Graham and the partners of the EDMB Group are delighted to have been named as the City of Edinburgh Council’s development partner to help transform this area of the city. Our vision for the project is to create a ‘sustainable community’ in every sense.

“We are focused on working collaboratively with the Council and local community to create a vibrant, safe and sustainable new neighbourhood where people are proud to live, work and socialise. We have prioritised quality placemaking within our proposals and have developed intelligent solutions that will respond to climate change and help to address fuel poverty through low carbon, energy efficient systems.”
