Cala Homes

Headquartered in Edinburgh, Cala Homes is the award-winning housebuilder responsible for delivering some of the city’s landmark developments, including The Crescent at Donaldson’s, Waterfront Plaza in Leith and the sensitive restoration of Boroughmuir.

Cala is passionate about creating vibrant and sustainable communities, seeking to leave a lasting positive legacy in the areas it builds, and the Giraffe About Town Trail is one of many community initiatives Cala is backing. Cala’s annual Community Bursary scheme has delivered £90,000 in funding for local causes in Edinburgh and across the Lothians, over the past five years. It has also partnered with the SSPCA and Samaritans in supporting the vital work they do in the community.

Cala are looking forward to you all meeting their giraffe – and for those that do, please stop to look up and say hi!

Given the difficulties that families and communities have faced in the last two years, the timing of the Giraffe About Town Trail couldn’t be better. We’re delighted to be a part of it, helping thousands of people to get out, ‘look up’ and enjoy public art throughout the city, while also supporting the amazing conservation work of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland.

As a responsible developer we always seek to enhance the communities in which we build and this partnership gives us another great opportunity to put those words into action. We’re looking forward to seeing our giraffe in situ in the heart of the city centre”
