The CALA Donaldson’s development located at West Coates, Edinburgh, behind the existing Playfair Building, involving the construction of 84 contemporary one, two and three bed luxury apartments began construction on site in April 2017. The shell and core works by BAM Construction Ltd are well underway with excavation nearing completion for the underground basement which spans the entire crescent.
Works undertaken to date include the excavation of the basement, temporary sheet piling to the west side of the site, and the concrete piling across the basement has begun. The works are due to complete in the Winter of 2019 with the east crescent expected to be completed in the summer of 2018.
The works will be handed over on a stair core by stair core sectional completion basis to CALA who will be undertaking the high quality fit out works themselves.
CALA have a dedicated microsite for the project. You can read more about the project and register interest at https://www.cala.co.uk/homes-for-sale/east-of-scotland/the-crescent-at-donaldsons
