Plans have been submitted for 81 new homes at the Edinburgh Marina redevelopment site.
The development of Boardwalk, which will be located at the heart of the Granton Harbor site in Edinburgh, is expected to help form a new coastal community.
According to a statement submitted by Wilson + Gunn Architects on behalf of Edinburgh Marine Holdings, the project will include the construction of 78 one, two and three bedroom apartments, three houses and nine business units totaling 1,000 square meters.
Development on Parcel 35a of the Granton Harbor site would also include significant landscaped areas in the form of open public spaces within the footprint of the parcel, including a central pedestrian avenue leading to the wharf side promenade demarcating the edge. west of the marina.
A statement submitted with the request added, “Such a development here presents a feasible opportunity to provide high quality residential and commercial housing and open public spaces. The high quality architectural design, both expressive and complementary to the historical context of Granton Harbor, will reinforce the character of the area while creating a new sense of place.
The development of Edinburgh Marina is a major new build urban regeneration project. The waterfront proposals incorporate the redevelopment of over 60 acres (24 ha) of land stretching along the Firth of Forth and will provide a rejuvenated link between Edinburgh city center and the Forth Estuary.
At the heart of the regeneration is the construction of a unique coastal community, comprising over 2,400 new homes comprising both apartments and homes to own or rent. The community will be built around Edinburgh’s new 300 berth marina and the all-suite Spa Hotel, as well as a local hub with up to 18,500m² of new retail space, leisure and shopping facilities, including a new medical center at Chestnut Yard.
Previous plans to significantly alter the development master plan with a revised infrastructure layout were rejected earlier this month following an appeal to the Scottish government.
