A mix of highly energy efficient one & two bedroom apartments, cottage flats and two & three bedroom terrace homes.

This  £23 million development at Muirhouse, Edinburgh was delivered to social housing providers Dunedin Canmore, part of the Wheatley Group and Muirhouse Housing Association.

Hazel Young, Dunedin Canmore Managing Director said: “The new homes in Muirhouse are a great boost to the community. The properties are providing cosy, modern homes for people and we’re delighted that customers are so happy with them. We look forward to working with Springfield again in the future.”

Kevin Stewart, Minister for Local Government and Housing, said: “We are determined to accelerate and increase affordable housing supply across Scotland, to reach our ambitious target of 50,000 affordable homes, backed by £3 billion investment during the lifetime of this Parliament.  I am therefore delighted that Springfield Properties, in partnership with Dunedin Canmore and Muirhouse Housing Association, have officially completed over 200 affordable homes.  

“This is a great example of how partnership working can deliver high quality, energy efficient homes that are a welcome addition to the supply of affordable housing in Edinburgh.”

Located on the site previously occupied by BT Training Facilities, this development forms part of the Muirhouse regeneration project and brings a new lease of life to a once deprived area. It provides housing for social and mid-market rent tenure built to the highest of standards.

Properties are built with energy efficiency in mind and come with either Air Source Heat Pumps or Solar PV Panels.

Phase 1 was completed for clients Muirhouse Housing Association in July 2014, with 58 homes built in 15 months. Phase 2 was completed a year later for the same client, with 64 more homes built. A third and final phase was completed in February 2018, with a new client, Dunedin Canmore. Between the three phases there are a mix of homes, apartments and cottage flats.
