Fountainbridge brewery to make way for 78 apartments and offices
A former brewery in Edinburgh’s Fountainbridge district is to make way for 78 flats and 140,000sq/ft of speculative office space following its sale to Fountainbridge Holdings, a joint venture between Amco and Omni.

The developer has enlisted Michael Laird Architects to overhaul the brownfield  site, which lies adjacent to the Union Canal, by tying it into other regeneration projects currently underway as part of a wider masterplan.

Nadir Khan-Juhoor, director at BNP Paribas Real Estate, said: “The purchase of this well-located city centre development site to create a major mixed-use scheme has been a long time in the making and we are delighted to have worked with the client and the professional team to secure it.

"The site has been cleared following the demolition of the former brewery and it will be exciting to watch the location transform as the masterplan becomes a reality.”

Work on site is expected to get underway later this year.

Hearing that Michael Laird has won a commission generates the kind of excitement you'd feel on hearing that Ian Duncan Smith was organising your stag do. They're competent, yes - but oh lordy, dull, dull, dull....

Since when was IDS competent? Before or after the bedroom tax?

Reiach and Hall have obviously been rubbing off on them

It's basically a mish-mash of recent(ish) Edinburgh office and hotel projects battered onto the site.
