A detailed planning application has been submitted to build 122 homes at South Fort Street in Edinburgh.

Designed by EMA Architects, the project for Barratt Homes and the Blake Group will see the redevelopment of the site within the Bonnington area which is recognised for major change in the coming years.

The design seeks to provide frontage to the existing streets and a new civic space to the centre of the site.

A new pedestrian / cycle route through the site will allow connections to the existing Nation Cycle Network to the north and fulfil the aspirations of the City of Edinburgh Council’s Bonnington Design Brief.

EMA submitted a separate application for a development of 80 apartments at the West Bowling Green Street end of the Bonnington district back in February, while Miller Homes plans to deliver a development of 214 homes arranged over five blocks on a site presently occupied by warehousing at Bonnington Village.
