Oxgangs Green

EDINBURGH-based developer Hopefield Partnership has appointed Hart Builders, part of the Cruden Group, to deliver a multi-million pound new housing development at a former primary school in the capital.

Due to begin as soon as construction restarts in line with Government guidance, the £11m development, at the former Hunter’s Tryst Primary School in Oxgangs Green, will see 85 new homes built on the empty brownfield site.

The development has been designed around a village green theme, and the new homes consisting of a mix of 79 one, two and three-bedroom flats and six terraced houses, will be let for mid-market rent when they are completed. 

The new homes are being delivered as part of PfP Capital’s Mid-Market Rent fund set up by PfP Capital and supported by the Scottish Government which aims to provide around 1,000 mid-market rental homes across the country.

Andy Mallice, Hart Builders managing director said: “We are pleased to be working with Hopefield Partnership to deliver this significant project in Oxgangs to bring quality affordable homes to the area.”
