Milestone for new ‘blueprint for low carbon living’ development in Edinburgh

Izzy Bastiani

A milestone has been reached on ‘one of Scotland’s most anticipated new residential developments’, after an on-site sales & marketing suite launched at Artisan Real Estate’s Rowanbank Gardens site in Corstorphine, Edinburgh.

Described as a ‘spectacular blueprint for low carbon living’, the development will deliver 93 apartments. Work began last summer with the first move-ins expected next spring.

The apartments have been designed around an internal courtyard garden, filled with fruit trees and communal planting and growing beds as well as a natural woodland area and formal lawns. Innovations such as green roofs have been tipped to ensure benefits of surface water retention, improved insulation and biodiversity.

Artisan’s new homes sales advisor, Izzy Bastiani, will now be based permanently at the new sales and marketing suite. She said, “This is a fantastic development in a fantastic area – and the sales and marketing suite really brings to life what it would be like to live here. Visitors will be able to see, at first hand, just how well-connected and vibrant Corstorphine has become, with everything you need on your doorstep.

“Rowanbank Gardens has been designed to meet the needs of the modern buyer, making it ideal for the first-time buyer and downsizer market. At its heart is a sustainable design which reflects the demands of modern life, with buildings designed to minimise carbon footprint and maximise daylight. Significant emphasis is placed on the quality of internal space and light to create enjoyable home-working environments, whilst accessible gardens and landscaping promote health and well-being by making nature and well-designed outdoor space integral to the day-to-day living experience.”
