Raining Stairs

Once a thriving part of the medieval core of Inverness, this had become a complex derelict site in the heart of the city encompassing a 27m rise, suffering from poor access and attracting anti-social behaviour.

A series of aborted redevelopments over nearly 50 years had failed to bring the site back into use, until a collaborative approach of private, public and third sector interests working in partnership took the chance to increase the supply of desperately needed affordable housing. The close working relationship was critical to the success of the project, which now boasts 16 new homes available on a mix of affordable and mid-market rents, as well as providing an attractive pedestrian link within the town centre.
