AN EXCITING new residential development on the capital’s Waterfront has seen huge early demand with the launch of its show apartment and sales suite.


Waterfront Plaza by CALA Homes (East) officially opened on Saturday 13th July, with the major housebuilder seeing 16 reservations and over 200 visitors in the first two weeks.


Situated on the historic Leith Waterfront, the development is home to a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, ground floor colony apartments and duplex colonies.


Those interested can now step in and see what life could be like in Leith by visiting the new two-bedroom show apartment, designed by renowned Blocc Interiors.

Suzanne Thomas, Creative Sales Director at Blocc, said: “It’s important that a showhome design captures the essence of contemporary living – on-trend and aspirational but not out of reach.


“We have deliberately weaved one colour scheme throughout but varied it in each room with different textures and fabrics to make the design eclectic and interesting to look at.


“For example, the emerald green that can be seen in the sumptuous velvet headboard of the master bedroom also features in the scatter cushions – and the unique statement wallpaper in the bathroom.


“Neutral toned floor to ceiling curtains elongate a room nicely and give the feeling of a boutique hotel. And of course, the dusky pink tones that are not going out of style anytime soon give the whole apartment a fresh, contemporary vibe.


“We couldn’t be happier with the result – it’s always a joy to work with CALA on projects like this.”

Priced from £187,500 to £325,000, Waterfront Plaza development is the latest brownfield regeneration project from Edinburgh-headquartered CALA Homes.


The new homes at Waterfront Plaza will benefit from nearby Michelin starred restaurants and bars situated along the Shore area, as well as a host of independent shops and boutiques.


With Ocean Terminal on its doorstep, the development is in easy reach of a range of leisure facilities – including restaurants and a gym – as well as the famous Royal Yacht Britannia.


Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (East) said: “We’re certain that this show apartment will make a lasting impression on homebuyers looking for their new property in Leith.


“The team at Blocc do a fantastic job in reflecting our vision for these properties but also giving buyers a real sense of what life could be like at Waterfront Plaza.


“The launch of this development and its early success is a real source of pride for us. With Leith becoming such a sought-after area, it’s a pleasure and privilege to be delivering new homes here.”


Regular bus services and nearby cycle paths provide convenient access to Edinburgh’s city centre, and the city bypass is in easy reach, proving access to the M8 and M9, as well as the A90.


Travel links between the city and Leith are set to improve further in coming years with the extension of the Edinburgh tram service to Ocean Terminal, the Port of Leith and Newhaven.


The show apartment at Waterfront Plaza is available to view daily. For more information, please visit: or call 0131 516 6832
