Cruden begins work on the residential and commercial building on Colinton Road in Edinburgh Edinburgh

Work has begun on a new multi-million pound private project to create a mix of residential and commercial space on Colinton Road, Edinburgh.

Dunedin House Properties and Rutherford appointed Cruden Building East to realize this two-part project near the Craiglockhart Leisure & Tennis Center and the nearby Edinburgh Napier University. The two contracts have a total value of £ 6.2 million.

Designed by Yeoman McAllister Architects, the development will create much-needed private housing in this ideally located area of ​​Edinburgh. The largest order, valued at £ 5m, is for Cruden Building East to create 19 highly sought-after two- and three-bedroom apartments and two retail units for Dunedin House. The private development will also include five residential units – one studio apartment and four two-bedroom houses – and a co-op retail unit built for Rutherford under a £ 1.2 million contract.

The development should be completed by the beginning of 2023.

Allan Callaghan, General Manager of Cruden Building East, said: “We are very excited to begin work on this exciting new private development that will bring much-needed homes with an abundance of amenities to the Scottish capital. Edinburgh has so much to offer as a place to live and we are working closely with Dunedin House Properties, Yeoman McAllister Architects and other key stakeholders to meet the evolving needs of the housing market in these unprecedented times. ”

Andrew Peters, Managing Director of Dunedin House Properties, said: “At Dunedin House Properties we have a strong track record of sourcing successful home developments and we continue to be careful to appoint architects, designers and builders with an eye for quality.

“Construction began on Colinton Road and, as Edinburgh-based property developers, we are proud to work closely with contractor Cruden Building East, Yeoman McAllister Architects and other consultants to deliver these high quality homes and commercial spaces for the benefit of the local community . “
