165 Leith Walk – Former Tram Depot Demolition

The former tram depot, located at 165 Leith Walk, is due for demolition: further communication will follow regarding the programme for these works in the coming weeks. The area will be cleared and a creative workspaces project will occupy part of this site.

The smaller building at the front of the former depot (165a Leith Walk) will be retained and refurbished to create a pilot partnership hub delivering local services.  The project is a collaboration between site owners, The City of Edinburgh Council and local arts trust, Out of the Blue.

The project team intends to hold a drop-in community event on 28th June, between 4.30pm – 7.00pm, in the McDonald Road Library.  At this event, there will be an opportunity to find out more about these proposals and to ask any questions.

Should you have any queries or concerns with regards to the above, please do not hesitate to contact me direct either at this Email or at leith.programme@edinburgh.gov.uk

Kind regards
