A contract notice has been published in the EU Official Journal this morning for the £70m-£80m project.
The project aims to deliver 800 new build homes across several cleared master planned sites totalling 14ha within the Pennywell/Muirhouse area of northwest Edinburgh. Some will be council houses and some for private sale. The development should be ‘tenure blind’ and contribute towards the council’s regeneration aims for the area, the council says.
The council is aiming to start construction next year in 2013.
