Quartermile buildings + spaces: images of key architecture around this developing site, taken on 14 Sep 2014

Edinburgh’s Quartermile urban regeneration scheme is poised to benefit from a £170 m investment from its new owner in a bid to drive the development forward. Construction at the 19-acre site largely ground to a halt during the property crash of 2008-9, but a recent upturn in activity means property investor Moorfield, which bought the project from Lloyds-backed developer Gladedale Capital at the end of September, is hopeful of finalising work in 2017.

The SNPG recently underwent an ambitious £17.6m restoration project with an entirely new presentation of its world-famous collection. The project – the first major refurbishment in the Gallery’s 120-year history – restored much of the architect’s original vision, opening up previously inaccessible parts of the building and increasing the public space by more than 60 percent.
