Dockside Build to Rent homes in Leith; featured amenities

After purchasing the project in 2022, Goodstone Living’s specialized development team completely redesigned it as an electric-only development.

Every apartment at the Dockside Build to Rent homes in Leith will also come equipped with an air source heat pump, securing the project when the electricity grid is decarbonized. Furthermore, the development offers panoramic views and resident amenities like a rooftop lounge and dining, co-working spaces, and a fitness center.

Dockside also encompasses 1.3 acres of new public realm space. It features pocket parks and a publicly accessible boardwalk. This is created to link the Albert Docks, the historic industrial Docklands in the North of Leith, with Ocean Terminal. The terminal is a shopping, dining, and leisure hub adjacent to the development.

Plans are also in place to allow community organizations and businesses to utilize some of the available commercial space, providing the young and people from underrepresented backgrounds with access to educational, professional development, and training opportunities.

Through its Community and Skills Action Plan, McAleer & Rushe will support the execution of Goodstone Living’s social value strategy. The waterfront development was designed by 3DReid Architects.
