This looks a more in keeping with the surrounding buildings. Its a bit of a shame they can't incorporate the fašade of the former lodge building into this new build.

Reminds me of this much-lauded piece of facade retention https://www.dezeen.com/2013/08/29/ca...ner-announced/

The shoebox is not welcome, but the removal of the old fašade doesn't seem that much of a loss. An upgrade would not have been a big ask - instead, we're getting the usual 'meh'.

I enjoy a good infill development. Wish they could tart up the bridge and the surrounding area a little bit though.

ICA have revised their Gorgie Road scheme, reducing the number of beds to 248, but planning officers have still recommended its refusal due to a failure to include general housing in combination with the student accommodation. Determination due at next week's Development Management Sub-Committee.

That's the gap site next to Century General Store, yes? Be nice to see in filled up, I haven't been in Edinburgh long enough to know it as anything but a huge gap!

Most recently it was a petrol station. By the look of the site it was probably a part of a tenement at one time. I lived in that area from about 1974 and don't remember it being anything but a petrol station.

Looking at the historic maps on the Edinburgh Atlas it looks like there used to be a tenement there, or possible a warehouse.

Thanks. One of the aerial photographic maps shows a building with two pitched roofs. Could be a warehouse, an assembly hall, maybe a church.

A photograph in this link shows a fire tender at the foot of West Norton Place. I think it dates from the 1960s judging by the cars in the background. As you can see there was a strip of tenements at the top of the street that are no longer there but are part of the footprint for this proposed student accommodation development.

http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/0_edin_t...ine_sy5885.htm

Incidentally, there was fire station just round the corner on East Norton Place.

Century General Store used to be a pub. But I can't remember what it was called.

Would have made a good Homelessness Centre, and be large enough to house a hell of a lot of street sleepers in student accom style bedsits, and still have space for allotments and a social enterprise run out of the chapel. oh well. :/

Good to see the "top storey of glass is invisible" trope lives on!

useful infill, and frankly, as it seems on I love Leith Facebook, there are finally some folk standing up for students on there in the face of such knee jerk anti-sentiments. This will support some of the cafe's and shops on Easter Rd quite nicely, and tidy up that space.
