Edinburgh’s new Garden District development – what will it look like?

In the news yesterday, Murray Estates have been granted planning permission to build 6000 houses and leisure facilities on greenbelt land just outside Edinburgh. 

The image below represents an overview of the area the development is planned for.

But what will it actually look like?

6000 houses is quite a lot to try and envisage what it will look like, and how they will affect the surrounding areas.

Our latest buildings feature in VentusAR helps to assess the impact of rural developments, and will enable the visualisation of developments, onsite, from any location.

This can help engage with the public better, showing them exactly what large projects such as this will look like from their front door.

The VentusAR buildings feature uses a library of 3D building models, and can be shown using Fly Through to show the buildings in the context of the landscape; or using My View, to show what the development will look like on screen, using the real-time camera as a live background. Furthermore, photos and videos can be created and easily shared.

We will be releasing this new and exciting feature mid June 2016.

If you are working on designing or assessing buildings in a rural environment, we would love to hear from you – please get in touch by emailing or calling 0141 559 6170. We can come and show you what we are up to, how we can improve your assessment processes and save you money!
