Llewelyn-Davies shows off £500m Edinburgh blueprinttects

  • Comment

Llewelyn-Davies has unveiled its mammoth £500 million plan to create 5000 new homes, large tracts of offices, industrial accommodation and open spaces on Edinburgh's waterfront.

The 15 year masterplan for the city's Granton area was published in draft form last week and is based on 'an underlying philosophy of mixed-use and urban villages' with the intention of achieving a waterfront worthy of a capital city. The practice's David Stuart Walton said that his team has been concerned to create a 'uniquely Scottish solution for a uniquely Scottish place,' while recognising an international perspective.

The plan includes a new marina, a promenade, a restored beach, two new primary schools, a site for a new university, a 5000-seater ice rink and sports centre, and retail centres. It will be considered by the city's planning committee today. Consultation runs from 21 February to 31 March.
