Exciting Edinburgh Waterfront Development Continues apace

Funded in partnership by the Scottish Government & the City of Edinburgh council, Edinburgh’s Waterfront development project continues, with its goals targeted clearly on creating a net zero carbon city . This is urban development and regeneration on a large scale on the former grounds the Maldevic Motor Carriage Company, a Gasworks and the site of parson Peebles that made transformers for power stations. ( Ref here)

According to Granton Waterfront Development’s Framework, the idea is to create a “new, vibrant, healthy and sustainable coastal quarter on Edinburgh’s Waterfront” ( Ref: Granton Waterfront Development Framework Feb, 2020). Plot 27 was designed to create 132 new homes- waterfront living with views of the River Forth and the Fife coastline.
