Cameron Toll shifts from retail to mixed-use in neighbourhood centre drive
March 11 2022
A public consultation to transform Edinburgh's Cameron Toll Shopping Centre, currently designated as a commercial centre, into a neighbourhood centre has been held.
3DReid Architects have prepared a radical masterplan for the ageing out of town mall, opened in 1984, to take account of fast-changing mobility and shopping patterns.
This would see the current site, which alongside the mall comprises two drive-through outlets, a petrol station, service yards and a 1,000 space car park remodelled to face out to the Craigmillar Park Conservation Area.
The diversification strategy would include new homes, a hotel and improved pedestrian and cycle routes and follows a 2020 proposal to erect a new cinema and additional retail.
Detailed plans for the hotel and apartments will be brought forward separately following approval of the overall masterplan.
