CALA goes to town with new launch of Leith waterfront homes
In a positive step towards a tentative return for Edinburgh’s property sector, CALA has launched some new townhouses to market at its Waterfront Plaza development in Leith.
Comprising plenty of flexible space set across three levels, The Brae townhouse by CALA Homes (East) is the latest housetype to be launched by Waterfront Plaza.
With the first two of these three-bedroom townhouses now available for reservation, CALA also plans to launch a townhouse showhome in late summer/early autumn. This will initially be able to be viewed virtually until it is deemed safe to host private appointments.
At the start of the lockdown it also launched its Remote Reservations service, which has proven popular among buyers to confidently secure their home from the comfort of their current home, with the fee fully refundable. Buyers can also opt to use the developer’s other helpful services such as its Part Exchange or Guaranteed Buyer services.
Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director with CALA Homes (East), said: “There is a real community building at Waterfront Plaza – and that is owing in part to the brilliant range of apartments and homes, attracting a diverse range of buyers.
“We’ve already seen the sell-out success of the colony apartments and duplexes – a style of home intrinsic to Edinburgh.
“These townhouses are again so familiar to the city. Yet our design teams have been able to build on everything we love with traditional townhouses; that sense of height, large windows and grand hallways – with modern twists throughout including a first floor private terrace to reflect how we live now.”
Ewan McIntyre, managing director with EMA Architecture and Design, who designed the homes in partnership with CALA’s in-house teams, said: “It’s a real privilege to be able to work with CALA on a site as special as this. CALA’s particular approach has enabled us to design a broad range of high quality and innovative family homes for the site, including these townhouses.
“The opportunity to design homes for families to live in a waterside setting in Edinburgh is very rare and we’re proud of what we’ve been able to achieve here.”
