Lochrin Basin is a mixed-use development that is situated in the Fountainbridge area of Edinburgh, ideally located with panoramic views of the city’s canal district.
The project has been delivered as part of the Fountainbridge Masterplan that has seen extensive development undertaken since 2010. Lochrin Basin forms a new link to the adjoining Tollcross, Dalry and Viewforth neighbourhoods replacing a derelict site that once housed garages belonging to Arnold Clark that were demolished in 2006. With the installation of pedestrian and cycle paths as along with public realm space, Lochrin Basin has been created to form much-need living space whilst preserving and safeguarding the local townscape.
Lochrin Basin comprises a single block of 112 properties ranging from five to seven stories. The properties are privately rented and offered in a range of one, two and three bedrooms with the benefit of having access to a private garden at ground-level and two rooftop gardens that are accessible to residents at either side of the block, providing an extra 350m2 of amenity space. Shared courtyard space on the south side of the building creates an attractive, sunny courtyard which is overlooked by the new external terrace/ deck access arrangement.
Lochrin Basin also has a private, underground carpark offering residents a unique opportunity in an area of the city where parking is at a premium.
The development seeks to promote integration and communication amongst residents and the surrounding community. As such, a Common Lounge is located on the north elevation facing the public realm. A retail unit is positioned on the north/east corner and also faces the public
realm, to attract members of the public.
CCG completed works in summer-2017 after having commenced works in early-2016.
