Urban response

The design provides a successful transition from lower rise development from the rear of the site to 6 storeys at the front. The development facing towards the sea also responds to the existing height and tenemental scale of the Lower Granton Road.

The site has a 7 metre fall from south to north offering the opportunity for amenity deck courtyards over private under croft car parking accessed from Lower Granton Road.
