Stead's Place, Leith Walk.
Drum Property Group is in the early stages of developing proposals for a mixed-use development at Stead’s Place, Leith Walk, and has submitted a Proposal of Application Notice to Edinburgh City Council.
The site in Leith represents a major opportunity to revitalise an important part of the city, and potentially create a mix of affordable housing, innovative post graduate student accommodation, hotel facilities for visitors to the city, and retail space for the benefit of local retailers and the community.
The plans for the affordable housing will be developed in partnership with Places for People, with the University of Edinburgh operating the post-graduate student accommodation, which will also incorporate a hotel and restaurant / café. It is also proposed that the Leith Walk frontage of the new development will provide space for local retail, business and community uses.
