Start on site at Caerlee Mill, Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders for the first phase of the 44 new homes / by Nikki Barton



Work has started on site at Caerlee Mill for the first phase of the 44 new build houses and flats at the former Mill at Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders with groundworks and infrastructure now well underway. The £3.3 million development will add to the vibrancy of the established Innerleithen community.

City Architecture Office are providing ongoing support to help deliver the project with Whiteburn Projects, who is also the principal contractor.  The installation of the first timber frames for the new build homes is expected to begin this month.

The vision for the site, in the heart of this thriving Borders village, is to build a range of two, three and four bedroom houses and cottage flats which have been designed to reflect the spirit of the former mill site as well as the heritage of the village structure. 

This is the second project with award winning developer Whiteburn Projects for City Architecture Office.
