The second phase of Edinburgh Quay will complete the development by constructing the A1 and A6 buildings which face the main Fountainbridge and western boundaries respectively.

Edinburgh Quay Phase Two comprises 75,000 sq.ft of mainly office accommodation arranged over six floors from Basement (-1) up to Fourth floor, to be constructed on top of the concrete podium which was built as part of the first phase.
The structural frame will be primarily of concrete, with external finishes of aluminium curtain walling, rainscreen cladding, precast concrete panel cladding and blockwork with acrylic render finish.

Edinburgh Quay has already acted as a catalyst for the regeneration of Fountainbridge, with projects linking the city centre to the canal and residential areas beyond. Permission is being amended with start on site programmed for Autumn 2005.

Edinburgh Quay is a £60m mixed use development at the eastern terminus of restored Union Canal. Phase One received planning permission in 2001 and completed Spring 2005.

Edinburgh Quay Phase Two build cost is approximately £9m. The Union Canal dates from 1822 and originally terminated in Port Hopetoun

[canal basin on Lothian Road]. Lochrin Basin was created in the early 20th century as the end section was infilled and the canal declined. Prior to redevelopment the Edinburgh Quay site was occupied by a series of poor quality buildings and industrial units; the Lochrin Basin was derelict and the towpath inaccessible to the public.

The Joint Venture between British Waterways and Miller Developments is entitled Edinburgh Quay Ltd. The Miller Group is the UK’s largest privately owned property company.

Materials used at Edinburgh Quay Phase Two include a structural frame of concrete and steel (for the top floor only) with external finishes of aluminium curtain walling, rainscreen cladding, precast concrete panel cladding and blockwork with acrylic render finish.  Roof areas will be a combination of lightweight decks with single layer pvc membranes for the top most roofs and concrete decks with asphalt for roof plant areas and roof terraces.
