Fountainbridge urban ‘neighbourhood’ given green light
June 20 2018
Real estate giant Vastint has obtained planning permission from City of Edinburgh Council to proceed with the first phase of a new ‘urban quarter’ on the site of the former Fountain Brewery.
The planned urban ‘neighbourhood’ balance a mix of commercial, residential and leisure uses on the brownfield city centre site including a 262 bed Moxy hotel and restaurant fronting a new civic space.
Dubbed New Fountainbridge the development will also include a ‘landmark office’ and retail together with family homes and canal-side apartments.
Chris Jetten, development manager at Vastint said: “Our plan heralds a fresh start for Fountainbridge and we look forward to working with the community to create a vibrant, new neighbourhood that forms a distinctive, urban quarter in Edinburgh.”
Phase one of the plan, designed by 3DReid to include the hotel and 56,370sq/ft of office space, will move on-site by the end of the year. A separate planning application for the residential component of the scheme will also be lodged later this year.
