Parabola trail ambitious Edinburgh Park masterplan
Parabola, owner of 50 acres of developable land to the south of Edinburgh Park, have unveiled their masterplan vision for the land, aiming to establish a new city quarter within the business district.

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.

Dont understand why this is still undeveloped.
We keep hearing Edinburgh is short of quality office space. This site is next to a railway station, two tram stops, the bypass and about ten minutes from the airport.
Now - ANOTHER masterplan!! Just get on and build something.

You could say almost exactly the same thing about India Quay. Get on with it!
