Gregor Shore continue to demonstrate their commitment to this exciting project with another offering of 120 residential flats. This is a joint venture with Fairbriar Homes who are part of the UK wide Scarborough Group.

Also on the canal, Taylor Woodrow & Bett are creating contemporary apartments extending to 250 in number, Cruden Homes are building townhouses on the north bank with a view to attracting families; Applecross, who like Gregors, practice high quality finishes are doing flats also on the north bank of the canal and FM Homes are involved building waterfront apartments along North Breakwater Road. GSF are anchor developers and with construction getting off to a flying start in the spring of 2007, the Marketing Suite is scheduled to open for business by summer. Granton Canal heralds Gregor Shore’s first collaboration with Fairbriar, a relationship which is set to develop even further with other projects.
