Purpose-built student accommodation
Public consultation launched for student residential redevelopment of the former Scottish Law Commission office site at 140 Causewayside.
Second consultation planned for 27th July. Planning submission targeted for autumn 2023.
” Balfour Beatty Investments, owned by Balfour Beatty plc, is looking to bring forward high-quality student homes on the site of the Scottish Law Commission building, 140 Causewayside.
Providing a mix of studio and cluster apartments, this development will serve to address a well-documented increasing demand in the capital, ensuring that students are occupying purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA) rather than other homes in the city more appropriate for families.
The site at Causewayside, on the A700, is a suitable location for PBSA in terms of access to higher education facilities, active travel and public transport services.
This exciting proposal will regenerate the current site and is being brought forward by a developer who has an exceptional record in the city, including the delivery of an award-winning postgraduate student scheme at Holyrood for the University of Edinburgh “.
