Plans for a new development of affordable housing where a derelict medical centre used to stand has been granted.
Just across from the train station, the area is currently surrounded by affordable housing and the new blocks of additional flats will contain 73 units in total.
The previous health centre has been demolished and just a number of trees are placed around the site. The buildings will contain five to six storeys and will be made up of a range of affordable and private housing.
The plans published by City of Edinburgh Council highlight that there will be 41 apartments for social rent, 31 will be mid-market and five will offer wheelchair access.
With a contemporary design, there roof of the blocks will be flat with a combination of grey-facing brick, red multi-facing brick and buff facing brick for the exterior. Juliet balconies are also proposed across the vast majority of window openings.
It is also proposed that the development will provide a total of 188 cycle spaces, exceeding the minimum requirements as sets out in the Edinburgh Design Guidance.
For families that could move in, there will be a central recreational space in the area that will offer play facilities, greenery and trees. Private gardens will also be provided to ground floor apartments and private terraces will be in place to the flats along Murrayburn Gate.
