Cruden begins residential and commercial construction on Colinton Road in Edinburgh

Work has started on a new multi-million pound private development that will see a mix of residential housing and commercial space built on Colinton Road, Edinburgh.

Dunedin House Properties and Rutherford appointed Cruden East Building to deliver this two-part project located adjacent to the Craiglockhart Leisure & Tennis Center and close to Edinburgh Napier University. The two contracts have a combined value of £ 6.2million.

Conceived by Yeoman McAllister Architects, the development will provide much-needed private accommodation in this ideally located part of Edinburgh. The biggest contract is valued at £ 5million and it will see Cruden Building East create 19 highly sought after two and three bedroom residential apartments and two retail units for Dunedin House. The private development will also include five residential apartments – one studio and four two-bedroom houses, as well as a cooperative business unit, set up for Rutherford under a £ 1.2million contract.

The development is expected to be completed in early 2023.

Allan Callaghan, General Manager of Cruden Building East, said: “We are delighted to start working on this exciting new private development which will bring much-needed housing with many 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 changing 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 acquiring successful private developments and we continue to be mindful of appointing quality-conscious architects, designers and builders.

“Construction has started at Colinton Road and as an Edinburgh-based developer we are proud to work closely with the contractor, Cruden Building East, Yeoman McAllister Architects and other consultants to provide these homes and commercial spaces from high quality for the benefit of the local community. . “
