New award-winning green homes for Edinburgh
New houses have been built in Edinburgh to offer local residents a more energy-efficient and affordable place to call home.
A total of 11 new flats have been constructed at the Pennywell development in the north of the city and offer outstanding levels of thermal insulation and other energy-saving measures for future residents to enjoy, Scottish Housing News reports.
Completed by housing provider 21st Century Homes, the project forms part of a wider £80 million investment by City of Edinburgh Council that aims to help in the creation of more than 700 new green homes across the city in the coming years.
An award-winning addition to the local area, the scheme has already received accolades from the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Scottish Property Awards, as well as being named a finalist in Scottish Home Awards (with winners to be announced on June 2nd).
City of Edinburgh Council housing convener councillor Cammy Day told the news provider: "Pennywell is a fantastic development, which captures what we're aiming for across the city - a range of affordable, energy efficient homes that are completed to the highest standard.
"The project has already created jobs for local people and I am confident that Pennywell will be an asset, not only to its residents, but as part of the overall regeneration of north Edinburgh."
