Pennywell is part of the City of Edinburgh Council’s ambitious 21st Century Homes project which aims to create high-quality social housing by developing brownfield sites across the capital. Appointed as the City of Edinburgh Council’s development partner in 2014, Urban Union has so far delivered 187 private homes and 183 affordable homes.

KEY FACTS

Pennywell is a fantastic development and will greatly enhance the area. We are committed to investing in high quality, energy efficient, affordable housing and this is the perfect example of how this can be achieved. The project has already created jobs for local people and both the Council and Urban Union will continue to engage with the local community as part of it.
