A new residential development is set to launch this weekend (13th July 2019) on the capital’s waterfront as part of the area’s regeneration
Located in the historic port of Leith, Waterfront Plaza by CALA Homes (East) is launching its first phase on Saturday 13th July, where a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, ground floor colony apartments and duplex colonies will be available for sale.
Due to exceptionally high demand for these new homes, CALA recently took the decision to launch sales off-plan, with four of the colony duplexes already reserved.
With prices starting from £187,500, the properties offer buyers the ultimate urban lifestyle. Designed with contemporary living in mind, the apartments and colonies boast flexible, open-plan living spaces with light, open interiors.
Philip Hogg, sales and marketing director at CALA Homes (East), said: “This part of the city has become a very desirable property hotspot so it’s a privilege and responsibility to be delivering new homes here.
“Leith has great connections to the city centre and an abundance of local amenities, so it’s understandable why there would be such a demand for quality new homes in the area.
“Our selection of properties will help to meet this demand, while also providing enough choice for a range of homeowners, from young families through to professionals.
“We firmly believe that this transformation will breathe new life into this area and continue to establish Leith as one of the city’s most prime locations.”
Waterfront Plaza is the latest brownfield regeneration project by Edinburgh-headquartered CALA Homes, following on from popular Edinburgh sites nearby like Albert Dock, Trinity Park, Ten Brunswick Road and Liberton Grange.
The major housebuilder is celebrating a host of recent award wins after taking home three accolades at the Scottish Home Awards for its flagship development, The Crescent at Donaldson’s and being named as Home Builder of the Year at the Homes for Scotland Awards.
CALA’s new homes at Waterfront Plaza will benefit from nearby Michelin starred restaurants and bars situated along the vibrant Shore area, as well as a host of independent shops and boutiques.
With Ocean Terminal on its doorstep, the development is in easy reach of a range of leisure facilities – including restaurants and a gym – as well as the famous Royal Yacht Britannia.
Regular bus services and nearby cycle paths provide convenient access to Edinburgh’s city centre, and the city bypass is in easy reach, proving access to the M8 and M9, as well as the A90.
Travel links between the city and Leith are set to improve further in coming years with the extension of the Edinburgh tram service to Ocean Terminal, the Port of Leith and Newhaven.
