Parabola trail ambitious Edinburgh Park masterplan
October 4 2017
A mixed use neighbourhood would incorporate a mix of 750,000sq/ft of commercial space and a civic square together with up to 1,800 new homes. A range of landscaped amenity space will be offered within this including sports grounds, a doctor’s surgery and energy centre.
Parabola’s founder and owner, Peter Millican OBE, commented: “Our vision is unashamedly ambitious – to create a new vibrant community and architectural exemplar designed around the happiness and success of its people.
“We are building a new working and living community, redefining modern Edinburgh with a new gateway for the Capital.
“Since purchasing the land we have been working tirelessly, including the assembly of a design team which we regard as best in class.”
A first phase of will be delivered speculatively and could hit the ground in summer 2018, including an office block adjacent to Edinburgh Park Central Tram Station; including a car park, energy centre, 150-seat conference venue, café and bar.
A masterplan compiled by Dixon Jones, working in conjunction with residential architects Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands; commercial architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, landscape architect Gross Max and consulting engineer Woolgar Hunter, has already been submitted to Edinburgh City Council.
