21 Century Homes - Gracemount
project is part of the 21st Century Homes for Edinburgh Programme
which will see the City of Edinburgh Council building affordable
rented housing once again. The redevelopment of Gracemount,
Pennywell and Muirhouse and North Sighthill will contribute towards
delivering more badly need affordable homes to Edinburgh.
The first phase of new council homes for social rent in this
development is now complete and has been advertised on EH - Your
Key to Choice and online at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/keytochoice.
The first tenants are due to move in at the beginning of February
2012. There will be 67 new homes for social rent and these will be
released in phases until summer 2012. There will also be 20 mid
market rent properties within the first phase of the development
and 12 shared equity properties.
