PROPERTY management specialist Taylor & Martin has been appointed by Artisan Real Estate as the factor for the new Rowanbank Gardens development in Corstorphine.

The eco-friendly project will support Edinburgh’s low carbon housing ambitions.

Taylor and Martin, which revealed it has experienced ‘significant growth’ during the pandemic in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee, will support the 126 new homeowners with the upkeep of shared property – including the central courtyard garden at the heart of the development.

Director Michael Martin, who founded Taylor & Martin alongside Marc Taylor in 2013, said, “With green roofs and large accessible gardens, this is an exceptional development driven by sustainability. Reducing carbon output is incredibly important to homeowners.

“We’re pleased to provide our expertise to ensure that the well designed sustainable solutions that attract homeowners to purchase, including a large communal garden with fruit trees and growing beds, as well as  green roofs, remain at a high standard. It’s exciting to be involved in the industry as it begins to increasingly prioritise low carbon initiatives.”

The factor will also be responsible for maintaining electric charging points. The company last year opened its Edinburgh office and appointed David Jones to head its east coast operations.
