Last chance for public to have their say on Fountainbridge master plan
April 7 2014
Drawn up by 7N Architects the plans incorporate a restored former rubber works alongside a new Boroughmuir High School and 340 high density homes alongside the Union Canal together with complementary office, retail, leisure and public realm works.
This is intended to establish a new neighbourhood on 8.2 acres of former brewery land with a large public events space at its heart.
As an interim measure the developers are also soliciting possible temporary uses for the central site ahead of building works getting underway; notably a temporary hotel and outdoor market.
Lynn Smith, Senior Development Manager for the group explained: "What we're doing at the moment is the pre-application consultation. If approved, these proposals will bring major regeneration to the Fountainbridge area and will help secure economic, civic and financial benefits for the city.
"The aim is to create a high quality mixed-use development at Fountainbridge which will include retail, housing, leisure and community uses."
EDI invite public comment on the plans through firstname.lastname@example.org until 18 April.
