Contractor named for Meadowbank student residences

Fortis Developments have appointed Hardies to deliver a Hackland + Dore designed student accommodation block at Stanley Place, Edinburgh, approved on appeal back in September 2016. 

Planners had initially refused consent on the grounds that it would have a detrimental impact on surrounding air quality and was out of scale with its neighbours but this was overturned by the Scottish government.

This clears the way for Hardies to begin delivery of a 93-unit scheme in the Meadowbank district of the city, taking the form of a linear brick-clad block conceived to create a continuous urban frontage to Stanley Place.

It is hoped to have the block up and ready for the summer 2019 intake of students.
