Cullross and Port of Leith HA lodge plans for 11 apartments at Edinburgh’s Telford Drive
Housing developer Cullross and Port of Leith Housing Association have lodged plans with the City of Edinburgh Council to build 11 apartments at Telford Drive, Edinburgh.
If approved, the flats will be built on the site of a disused convenience store, Urban Realm reports.
Led by jmarchitects, the design solution calls for an infill build to blend in with neighbouring local authority and housing association accommodation while addressing the Telford Path walking and cycle route.
In their design statement submitted to the council, jmarchitects wrote: “It is intended that the development will have a contemporary, modest appearance appropriate to its use and residential context.
“The designs have been developed with a simple and restrained palette of good quality materials.”
Ranging in size from 53 to 77sq/m, the apartments will have access to communal gardens, largely finished with render to the majority of walls with sparing use of brick on the front projecting block and base courses.
