9/5 Duncan Place forms part of Academy Lofts, a 53-apartment conversion of the former Leith Academy, developed by Sundial Properties.

The site occupied by Academy Lofts, has a remarkable history including being the original home of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, (1744), the John Watt Hospital (1862), before the present Category B listed building (1930-31) was built as a new secondary school for Leith Academy, one of the oldest schools in Scotland.

Leith is a renowned cosmopolitan and historic area approx. 3 miles east of Edinburgh, a vibrant city location with a mix of traditional and modern residential properties. The area is home to extensive convenience and specialist shopping, with a Tesco superstore on Duke Street. Nearby The Shore also offers a cosmopolitan range of bars, bistros, and Michelin-starred restaurants; whilst the Ocean Terminal complex has many high-street names, restaurants, gym, and multi-screen cinema. There are numerous public parks and squares, the expansive Leith Links, The Water of Leith Walkway and the Royal Botanic Gardens. There are highly-frequent bus services; a number of primary schools, with secondary schooling at Leith Academy, just south of there is easy access to universities/colleges due to the regular bus services running from the area. Close by links out of the city include the Waverley Train Station, A1, City Bypass and the national motorway network.
