Edinburgh Marina retirement living earns council approval
Edinburgh Marina Holdings has won approval from Edinburgh City Council to build their waterside retirement living concept as part of a £500m investment for 28 hectares of former docks.

Living for Retirement has been designed by Wilson + Gunn exclusively for the over 55s, comprising 104 apartments with their own dedicated guest accommodation, concierge, private storage and parking set within a private landscaped garden.

Residents will also enjoy access to a health and wellness centre complete with its own steam room and sauna as well as a cinema, bistro, lounge, library and laundry.

Developer Kevin Fawcett commented: “This development will take retirement living to a new level. We are delighted that detailed planning permission has been granted for our luxury retirement concept at Edinburgh Marina.  Living for Retirement will bring a unique new offering to the Edinburgh property market delivering a level of design and service that raises the bar above any retirement living options currently available in the city.”   

“The creation of Edinburgh’s first prime waterside residential quarter encompassing our Living for Retirement concept, adds major impetus to the city’s attraction as one of the UK’s most attractive and liveable lifestyle destinations.” 

Detailed permissions for the remaining elements of the scheme are expected early this year with construction following before the year is out.
