LDA & WYG to lead revitalization of Edinburgh’s George Street
December 8 2017
A long-term strategy is being sought for the shopping thoroughfare to attract shoppers by fostering a more harmonious mix of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians through decluttering.
LDA design director, Kirstin Taylor added, “George Street is such an important part of Edinburgh’s history – it is vital that it continues to be at the heart of the city’s growth. We want to create a place where people choose to spend more time, an all-year-round destination. More usable street space will add value and boost footfall, benefitting local businesses. It will also mean we can better connect the street to the city’s vibrant and successful events calendar.”
George Street has been identified as a regeneration priority in order to build on wider changes within the city, including a revitalized St Andrew Square.
