Forth Housing Association appointed Cruden Building East, part of Cruden Group, to deliver the project in the Cornton area of the city. The value of the project is £3.7 million.

The development, which has been designed by ARM Architects, will comprise a mix of two and three bedroom semi-detached houses, two bedroom terraced houses and one and two bedroom cottage flats. It is said to have been “carefully designed” with all of the properties elevated to reflect the riverside location of the site.
