Mixed-use proposal submitted by CDA for Fountain North: office & retail development for Fountain North United
Oberlanders Architects LLP have now submitted detailed planning applications for the three initial sections of a £200 m scheme that will transform a former brewery site in Fountainbridge in one of Edinburgh’s biggest city centre regeneration projects in recent years.
Oberlanders Architects, together with their clients Grosvenor Estates, AMA and the Royal Bank of Scotland, gained outline planning consent for the masterplan in January 2006. The site will contain a total of 650 homes, offices and retail spaces.
The coming months will see a radical transformation of this 8 acre industrial landscape. Previously unseen vistas will open and reveal just how much of the city is currently isolated and inaccessible. The project will stitch the Fountainbridge area back together with surrounding sections of the city and bring permeability and movement of people directly from the Haymarket area via Fountainbridge to Bruntsfield.
The first phase of the development will see the existing Brandfield Street and Upper Grove Place sympathetically extended to create a unique and unified new neighbourhood. Both streets will lead to a striking new urban space, a linear park with landscaping, seating and children’s play areas. The new buildings lining these streets and the new park will be contemporary interpretations of the much-loved traditional Edinburgh tenement.
