Sector: Mixed use

The Muirhouse Shopping Centre buildings are being replaced by three new urban blocks with ground floor retail, commercial and residential development above.

A fourth block will provide a community hub, becoming the focal point around the civic square, with a library and much-needed services for the local community.

Each of the four blocks will be positioned around the civic square, with a vehicle-free landscaped area, seating zones and shrubbery, providing space for community events.

Regeneration at the heart

Regeneration is the primary focus of the project. The Muirhouse commercial centre sits at the centre of a wider Pennywell regeneration project, with an extensive programme of affordable housing being led by developer Urban Union.

The project was procured through the Scape Major Works framework (now Scape Scotland), with social value an integral part. Scape Group is a public sector owned built environment specialist offering a full suite of national frameworks and innovative design solutions.
