Butterfly: The Horizon Building, Lochend Butterfly, Edinburgh
The Horizon Building is newly constructed apartment block at Lochend Park View a short distance east of the city centre of Edinburgh and close to the open green spaces of Lochend Park, Calton Hill and Holyrood Park. Consensus Capital purchased a cleared brownfield development site from a housebuilder who had become insolvent during the financial crisis. Consensus Capital then obtained the planning permission for the current mix of 1-bed, 2-bed and 3-bed apartments, and with a main contractor built the six-storey property to specification for the housing association Hillcrest Group. The project was completed in 2014 and provides 48 new affordable homes.
