At last! Foster wins go-ahead for Royal Infirmary redevelopment

  • Comment

Foster and Partners has finally won planning permission for its £400 million redevelopment of the Royal Infirmary site in Edinburgh.

The green light has at last been shown despite a series of disagreements with the city council and the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland, which led to several redesigns.

The 7.5ha mixed-use scheme will, when complete, include office space, 650 new homes, shops, leisure facilities and a new hotel. The developer, Southside Capital, claims the project will create 3,800 new jobs.

The council announced last week that it was minded to approve the 13 planning applications essential for the project to progress - one detailed application, one conservation application and 11 listed building applications.
