Class 1 Retail and Flatted Dwellings
Leven Street, Edinburgh
Manson were appointed by Scotmid Co-operative in 2018 to provide planning and architectural services for the redevelopment of the existing Scotmid store on Leven Street, Edinburgh. The redevelopment included a new Class 1 retail unit on the ground floor and eight flatted dwellings above the store to be rented on the housing market.
Manson prepared and submitted an application for listed building consent and a detailed planning application, both of which were approved in August 2019 and the project commenced on site in November 2019.
The temporary store will be formed on the ground floor and the Store will remain trading to the public throughout the construction process. Manson are proud to be working with Scotmid Co-operative on a prominent central site with such an interesting history. The original store was built in 1959 and was the first American-Style shopping experience in Edinburgh.
