The Harris Partnership Has Designs On Scottish New Town Sainsbury’s / October, 2015

Proposals for one of the largest mixed-use developments in Scotland have received a major boost with the lodging of planning applications for a Sainsbury’s supermarket designed by The Harris Partnership.

The application by real estate investment company LXB, forms part of the first phase of a proposed multi-million pound sustainable new community at Corton in South East Ayrshire.

The supermarket will boast a restaurant, petrol filling station, over 600 parking spaces and recycling facilities.

The overall South East Ayr Development Masterplan envisages 2,700 new homes to be delivered over 30 years in three phases on a 450 acre site. It will deliver sustainable economic opportunities for Ayr and the wider area, integrating the new community and offering an enriched public realm for residents and visitors.
