FIRST built back in 1850, colony houses have earned a front page in Edinburgh’s architectural history – and rightly so.

Colonies in areas such as Stockbridge and Haymarket have become some of the most sought after in the capital, with their community feel offering a welcome slice of tranquillity away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

With the iconically Edinburgh home in such high demand, CALA Homes (East) has taken inspiration from the traditional design to offer house hunters a modern twist at its upcoming Waterfront Plaza development in Leith.

We spoke to the architects behind the clever design, telling the news of CALA’s upcoming development. Our clever storytelling managed to generate a total of 14 pieces of coverage across, national, regional and trade titles – with highlights including:

  • Front page of the Edinburgh Evening News’ property supplement – read by over 18,000 house hunters across the capital
  • Features in the Sunday Mail and the Daily Express – two of the country’s leading national papers
  • Articles on respected trade sites including Scottish Construction Now, Project Scot and Urban Realm 
  • A total of 14 items of coverage – leading to over 650,000 opportunities to hear of CALA’s modern take on the colonies
