Approval accomplished for Edinburgh new student block

HG Development plan for the 76-bed building of the second block student accommodation got an approval. Edinburgh City Council has given permission for the construction opposite Meadowbank Stadium in the city.

This includes office space on the ground floor while it will be built on London Road joining a neighbouring block. The joining project is also being undertaken by HG Developments. Alongside, the student block development will replace an existing car wash.

The Edinburgh student block will see the delivery of a six-storey block on the corner site, predominantly in brick. Previous residential development consent could not be progressed because of the impossibility to build over a sewer present at the site.

However, the new planning application progressed after the site was re-marketed. London Road is a major thoroughfare in the city, served by bus routes including ones that directly serve university and college campuses and facilities.

Turley was the planning consultant while 3DReid was the architect who designed the project.
