The Engine Yards 377 homes include one, two and three bedroomed apartments, duplexes and 12 spectacular penthouses, varying in size from 47 to 131 square metres. Comprised of both owner-occupied and rented properties, the development benefits from an interesting and vibrant age and social mix. All the homes are designed to maximise space, light and solar gain. Most have dual aspect windows, so theyre light and airy. Many have feature balconies and those on the upper floors and roofs have great views over the City and the distant surrounding countryside. There are covered amenity decks above ground; terraced roof decks; direct street access at ground level, together with a variety of public and semi-public amenity spaces and a number of private gardens.
Carefully considered interiors are generally open plan to use space effectively and minimise wasted areas. Stylish, high quality kitchens and bathrooms are well-laid out and ergonomically effective. Many apartments have en-suite shower rooms in the master bedrooms. All the fixtures and fittings in all the homes are to a very high standard, and all benefit from high standards of insulation, centralised combined heat and power (CHP) systems and efficient utilities, designed to increase sustainability and minimise running costs. As well as being stylish, practical and efficient, The Engine Yard is also secure - entrance is by key fob only. There are entry phones and secondary lobby doorsto protect lifts, stairs and cycle stores. The car park is shuttered and also has key fob access*, and there is safe and welcoming low level lighting throughout the site. Everything thought about. Nothing left to chance.
The Engine Yard site is roughly rectangular, with its narrow ends, entrances and exits on Leith Walk and over Dryden Bridge to Dryden Terrace, and its this lengthwise orientation that contributes to the feeling of a gated community without gates. This feeling is reinforced by the ground plan. As well as a stylish and sympathetic conversion of the listed workshops and engine sheds, there will be seven apartment buildings, varying in roof heights between four and seven storeys.
