About this property

  • The site for sale provides the opportunity to deliver a unique residential and / or commercial development in west Edinburgh with excellent accessibility into the city centre and Scotland’s motorway network. The subjects benefit from a high quality residential-led masterplan with Planning Permission. Extending to around 24.9 ha / 61.5 acres with detailed approval for 490 family homes the subjects allow the delivery of housing in the west of Edinburgh, with the potential for commercial uses subject to consents. The site was formerly the Continental Tyres Factory and so the majority of the land is brownfield apart from the River Almond Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) located to the west. The site is relatively flat and the former commercial area has been cleared of structures although some foundation material will require further removal.
