Kinnear Road Submitted For Planning

Posted on February 1, 2014 by admin

The planning application for the proposed refurbishment of two grade B listed former Edinburgh Academy boarding houses and new build residential blocks on Kinnear Road has been submitted to the City of Edinburgh Council.  The development comprises the refurbishment of MacKenzie House (pictured) and the eastern half of Scott House, with 2 newly proposed  4 storey residential buildings between the existing structures.

Both of the former boarding houses, built around the turn of the 20th century, have private gardens overlooking extensive recreation grounds and parkland to the south, and will be provided with off street parking.  The new buildings have been designed to achieve a sympathetic scale and use of materials to the existing houses. The development will contain a total of 8 flats and 2 townhouses across the 4 separate buildings.
