Westpoint Homes have submitted plans for a development of 60 flats, a quarter of which will be affordable, on the site of an existing office block at Annandale Street, Edinburgh. Architects Covell Matthews wrote in their design statement: “It is our client’s intention to develop this residential development as a replacement building that is respectful of the urban fabric of its surroundings but also distinctive, high quality, contemporary and relevant in terms of the architectural language of today. Completing an urban block with landscaped grounds to the rear the property will prioritise pedestrian over vehicle movements across shared amenity spaces.
