Plans in for 683-home Edinburgh Meadowbank scheme

Edinburgh City Council and its development partners Graham and Miller Homes plan to build 683 homes on the site around the new Meadowbank Sports Centre.

The site at 139 London Road was formerly occupied by the wider Meadowbank sports complex, which included a stadium, running track, velodrome, grass and synthetic pitches, and indoor sports and leisure facilities.

Designed by EMA Architecture + Design, the scheme will be built out with 240 affordable homes, 259 build to rent properties and 184 homes for private sale.

Homes will have buff-coloured brick envelopes to blend in with surround stone homes

Assuming planning approval work could get underway on the project before the end of this year

The large site has been split into three main areas.

Site A is located to the immediate west and north of the sports centre ground. It will be built out with five affordable housing blocks ranging between 5 and 6 storey in height.

Site B is located to the east of the sports centre ground. It will be the largest section of site containing two affordable blocks ranging between 3 and 6 storeys.

A further eight blocks rising 2-6 storeys will contain a mix of flats and townhouses.

Site C will consist of one large build to rent block of flats rising to 5 – 7 storeys. At ground level there will be space for doctors, dentists, accountants or estate agents.
