2,000 home Edinburgh Marina masterplan wins approval
Granton Central Developments have won planning consent to construct 2,000 homes, a boatyard and associated infrastructure at Edinburgh Marina by City of Edinburgh Council.

The £500m Edinburgh Marina masterplan has been penned by Wilson + Gunn and calls for a 300 berth marina and 13,449sq/m of retail and leisure space in addition to housing and possible future tram connection.

William Gunn of Wilson+Gunn Architects commented: “Our detailed application for the marina offices and community boat yard is the first of many instructed by GCDL and we look forward to working with them and the City of Edinburgh planning department”

Detailed applications for the development are now on the masterplan could begin later this year for phased delivery through to 2019.

looks great, well done to Wilson+Gunn architects. Young practice getting an opportunity normally reserved for the 'big boys'

There was a disgustingly low level of community engagement on this project which is basically a money making exercise for GCDL. The scheme is totally uninspiring and follows the same pattern as all the other 'waterfront' mistakes.

Stephen Riley waterfront mistakes is the new harbour visitor centre in Arbroath. This scheme above is a welcomed additon to a Scottish coastline.
