EDINBURGH PROPOSALS UNVEILED

Home of the Scottish Parliament, the Castle, Greyfriars Bobby and now our first-joint proposal, Structured House Group will showcase refreshed proposals, together with Scotmid Co-operative, at two Public Information Days next week.  

The two days of public information will show the community and interested stakeholders new and refreshed proposals for a state-of-the-art store and student accommodation at 236 Gorgie Road next week. 

Partnering with Scotmid, we hope to bring a new and refreshing development to the local area and will be exhibiting our plans on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th of November at the Gorgie Dalry Stenhouse Church of Scotland from 2-7pm.

Working with Edinburgh City Council and following comments from locals and the Edinburgh Urban Design team, the team has worked extensively on revisions to the plans which we are keen to showcase to the public.

Our joint submission will see the community-convenience store transformed, which Scotmid will continue run, and our student apartments, management by our in-house operation team BOHO.

“This is a major development for Scotmid and we are proud to forge a partnership with a co-operative that has strong values and a history of supporting its local communities. Bringing local amenities together with student accommodation will further strengthen our offering for students in the area and bring a significant boost to the local economy.” Craig Inglis | CEO Structured House Group

We have teamed up with Edinburgh’s Manson Architects + Planners which has run number of large-scale projects and has been nominated for previous Property Awards as well as being listed as an Urban Realm Top 100.

The apartments will include internal amenity in the form of lounge/kitchen/dining areas for each cluster flat and common rooms and 100% of cycle storage will be included for each student. On site management of the upper floors will be incorporated into the secure entrance of the build. 

From inception to completion, we look after our buildings and our people and will be managing the build through our in-house management team, BOHO.

The proposed development, subject to planning, should to be completed by 2020 with the store back in operation and servicing the local community before the end of 2019.

Tearing down the walls

When people talk about co-living and co-working what do they mean? It’s described as a  relatively new phenomenon but when you think about it, people have been co-living their whole lives.

When you are born you co-live with your parents, when you go to university, you co-live with your flatmates, and when you meet someone, again, you’re co-living. It’s something we all do but don’t think about.

 

 

The concept of sharing is not new as people have always shared facilities such as gardens and amenities in residential developments – but what is new is the drive to create better communities for people, socially and economically.

Rapid urbanisation, ageing populations and non-nuclear families means that there is no one size fits all approach anymore. We are all living in different ways with many choosing to move back into cities for jobs, convenience and city living.

Whether you are old or young, the idea of having all the luxuries like a gym, cinema, restaurant, library and bar under the same roof, included in the price of your rent, is a dream for many.

By turning convention on its head and believing it can be done differently, we are creating new spaces to do just this.

We have a transient population choosing to move between cities for work, life and the experience; those who really do value the journey over the destination.

We also know we have an isolation problem with others wanting a community feel rather than being alone. So because we know this, we have taken great care to design with people in mind and to create communities through our fabulous and flamboyant brand, BOHO.

Let us be a part of your story.

Be bold; be ambitious

Where we are, where we are going, and what we want to achieve, at Structured House, we think about creation and building of new communities.

Be that in new spaces or forgotten locations, we want to get to know our neighbours and invest in people, places and in our cities.

There’s a new wave of thinking that values flexibility and choice over traditional ways of living and working. It’s with one another, with our neighbours, with strangers, with communities creating new community-living and co-living spaces.

Our millennials now demand flexibility moving from city-to-city, job-to-job and our empty nesters want their capital to travel, where we’re seeing a move back into our cities for ease of travel and services. Families are no longer nuclear. There’s no one size fits all.

We don’t just pay lip service to this. We are at the forefront of creating this. Like pioneers, we know that we all need to look at other angles and see what can be achieved and make the change happen.

We see the potential in urban spaces, in unloved and neglected sites, where town and cities can bring back residential living into our cities. We’re ambitious and daring and we are doing it.

And it doesn’t stop there. We not only purchase, design, obtain planning and build, we choose to look after the places we own through the launch of our very own in-house management company, BOHO.

It means we can build for the long-term, get to know our neighbours, look after our properties and our residents. We’re making spaces in places where people want to live, work,  socialising and grow.

Choosing BOHO is a way of life.


 

More than just 9-5

If you’re looking for more than just a job and want to be part of our vision then you’re in the right place.

We want creative, dynamic and unconventional thinkers to continue to drive Structured House.

We’ve gotten to where we are because there’s a team driving every decision, every success, overcoming every hurdle, and pulling together to make the company great in every way.

It’s not just a good place to work, it’s a good place to be, where you can see change happening and where you can influence. We only work with those who are as ambitious as we are and those can share our vision. We believe it can be done, do you?

If you think you could be what we’re looking for, we’re always happy to hear your pitch.
