Baltic Street is a large scale student accommodation development in the heart of Leith adjacent to the recently completed tram stop and historic dockyards of Edinburgh.

Baltic Street is a mixed-use development comprising purpose-built student accommodation, affordable housing, affordable shop units and a digital co-working space.

The site contains a rare and vulnerable group of historic Category B-Listed industrial buildings within the Leith Conservation Area.  Their conservation and integration into the development retains this remaining piece of industrial heritage, complementing it with modern structures which echo the industrial warehouses that once stood here.
