Projects / 65 London Road, Edinburgh
HG Developments Limited
65 London Road forms a high quality 76-bed Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) within Edinburgh’s Meadowbank area and characterised by its industrial heritage and later commercial and residential development.
The proposed development seeks to build upon HG Development’s investment in the area, with new student residential accommodation now under construction, on the neighbouring plot at 63-65 London Road.
The proposals provide 76 self-contained studios with a shared communal room located on each floor. The new development is connected to the neighbouring student housing scheme via a glazed link corridor that will ensure a more efficient energy strategy across both developments and promote the use of sustainable technologies such as heat recovery. A green roof to the new development supports both the attenuation of surface water and the enhancement of biodiversity within the site, with the wider landscaping offering increased amenity space for the students and a greater greening of the wider London Road streetscape. On-site bicycle storage and car-club spaces promote active travel.
