Builders appointed for Oxgangs development

A DEVELOPMENT of 79 one, two and three-bedroom flats, plus six terraced houses, in the Oxgangs area of Edinburgh, has taken a significant step forward, with the appointment of builders.

Says a media release issued by the developers, Edinburgh-based Hopefield Partnerships, Hart Builders has been chosen “to deliver a multi-million pound new housing development at the former Hunter’s Tryst Primary School in Oxgangs Green”.

The release adds: “[The] £11m development will see 85 new homes built on the empty brownfield site, providing some much-needed new affordable housing for the area.”

The housing will be let for mid-market rent when they are completed.

The new homes are being delivered for PfP Capital (part of the group that includes ‘property management, development and regeneration’ company, Places for People).

PfP Capital’s mid-market rent fund is supported by the Scottish Government, with the aim of delivering around 1,000 mid-market rental homes across the country (as reported, here, on the website, Social Housing).

The release states that the Oxgangs development is the second of two that Hart Builders is constructing for PfP Capital in Edinburgh, “which will provide 236 new affordable homes for the city”.

Hart Builders is part of the Cruden Group.
