Consultations begin for Edinburgh Airport ‘city’
January 30 2015
The mixed use project has been master planned by 7N Architects and will include a hotel, education campus, retail, office space and up to 2,000 homes, connecting directly to the city centre by tram.
On the cards since 2011 backers of the ambitious 30 year project are keen to capitalise on improved transport connections and planned airport expansion to put fresh impetus behind the scheme and secure investment.
In a statement New Ingliston said: “The initial development is intended to be adjacent to the Ingliston Park & Ride and tram halt that serves transportation interchange linking air travel to trams, buses and, through the close proximity to the motorway network to the whole of Scotland by private car.
“We want to create an attractive new city sector, alive for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, where people can live, work and relax in high quality, contemporary environment on a long term sustainable basis.”
A drop-in community exhibition to showcase the plans will be held at the airport’s Hilton hotel on 24 February between 13:00 and 19:00.
