Hyvots Bank - Phase 5 in progress. Beyond is existing houses on Hyvot Mill Drive, and beyond that Arthur's Seat.
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.
