Gracemount: 21st Century council houses
New local authority flats on the site of the former Gracemount multi-storey tower blocks. The development, by Cruden Homes, is part of the City of Edinburgh Council 21st Century Homes programme. Phase 1: Building 67 homes for social rent, 20 homes for midmarket rent and 12 homes for sale under a shared equity scheme. Phase 2: Building 70 flats and 46 houses for sale, including sale under a shared equity scheme. Work started on site in November 2010. The new streets are to be known as Linden Avenue and Philip Terrace. Linden as in Lime tree because of the avenues of limes originally on this site (ironically a good number of these have been removed during the redevelopment). Philip after the TB pioneer Dr Robert Philip who had a brucellosis-free dairy farm at Gracemount.
