Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Donaldson's CollegeCALA Evans Restoration Limited has reached an agreement with City & Country to jointly develop the Donaldson’s College site in Edinburgh.

The William Playfair designed Donaldson’s College building will be restored by City & Country, the leading expert in the sensitive restoration of historic and listed buildings, while CALA Evans Restoration Limited will retain the north part of the site to construct new build apartments.

This collaboration uses the specialist skill set of each company, who both have long track records in the industry, to ensure that the homes created within this unique setting will be of the highest quality that the site deserves and that future purchasers will expect.

There has been a planning permission for residential redevelopment of the site since 2007 which has been subject to subsequent amendments and CALA Evans and City & Country will consult extensively with the local community and with heritage groups in drawing up a new planning application which will be submitted to Edinburgh Council in early 2015.

News of this exciting project was picked up in STV online, the Edinburgh Evening News, Deadline News online, and, the Journal of Prime PropertySTV donaldsons collegeDonaldsons college in edinburgh evening news
