The project forms part of the New Waverley Masterplan to regenerate part of the Old Town of Edinburgh. The affordable housing comprises of three blocks designed as a ‘family of buildings’, with a horizontal emphasis defined by material and varied projections within the facade, to keep the appearance long and low to sit below the historic skyline when viewed from the Canongate graveyard.

Working with the property management and regeneration organisation Places for People a total of 40 affordable housing apartments with three ground floor commercial units has been delivered. CDA submitted planning amendments to the 2007 scheme in 2013 and were involved in the project through to completion in July 2015 in a monitoring role.
