Edinburgh House (La Collette Flats)
Andium Homes' Edinburgh House creating a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom lifelong homes providing a total of 147 units.
We are pleased to announce that Practical Completion has been achieved at Edinburgh House, formerly known as La Collette Low Rise on Green Street, St Helier.
Morris Architects are proud to have been the lead designers and contract administrators for delivering this prestigious development for Andium Homes.
The completed development provides 147 new life long homes for Andium Homes and was constructed by Dandara Jersey Limited.
The project was started back in 2008 when Morris Architects initially undertook a feasibility study to investigate increasing density on the existing site to provide additional affordable homes. The site contained original 1960's buildings, designated as a Listed Building Grade 4, and encompassed two protected open spaces. Planning approval was granted in 2015, however, owing to logistical constraints on the site several enabling works projects were undertaken including the creation of a new Electrical Sub Station and the relocation of the Oxygen Therapy Centre to Oak Tree Gardens prior to the demolition of the existing blocks.
This mixed-use development features 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units, and is intended for social accommodation purposes.
A central communal courtyard podium has been formed by the three residential blocks and a tiered public south facing terrace with views across to the beach will be supplemented by a new community centre, creating a great environment for residents now and in the future.
