Investing in new homes for Edinburgh - creating communities
Hyvots Phase 5 - part of the regeneration of the Hyvots Bank area of Edinburgh - this a 6.1 million project to create 60 affordable homes is funded by the City of Edinburgh Council, the Scottish Government and investment from Dunedin Canmore. Note the solar panels being incorporated into the roofs.
Hyvots Bank Regeneration, Edinburgh
Redevelopment of this area has been going on for several years now, with stops and starts due to the recession. Originally the site of an old mill and settlement on the Burdiehouse Burn, it was occupied by prefabs after WWII. In the 1950-60s that was replaced by local authority multistorey housing. Much of that has now been demolished and is being rebuilt to modern standards of construction, design and affordability.
