£120m Fountainbridge masterplan given go-ahead
April 30 2015
The mixed use masterplan for Freer Street will see creation of an Urban Villa branded boutique hotel designed by New York based Grzywinski+Pons in collaboration with Michael Laird Architects.
Led by Amco |Developments this forms part of a wider regeneration strategy drawn up by Union Hanover Securities (UHS).
UHS managing director Eric Jafari said: “We aspire for Urban Villa to serve as a social and cultural hub to the local corporate and residential community. Grzywinski+Pons has created something quite special – which, in our opinion, will make great strides in transforming the Union Canal into a vibrant ecosystem/destination.”
Construction work should start this October, with further detailed applications for specific components of the masterplan expected shortly, drawn up in collaboration with neighbouring landowners such as the EDI Group to ensure a consistent approach..
