Key Leith Buildings: Ocean Terminal
Design: CD Patnership, later CDA (owned by Sir Terence Conran)

This major Edinburgh retail development was built on former industrial docklands on the north side of the city. The large building is located at the edge of the boundary between formerly separate ports of Newhaven and Leith.

The land was formerly occupied by the Henry Robb shipyard, which closed in 1983. Since then, the area has undergone urban renewal and regeneration, much led by and on the lands in the ownership of Forth Ports.

These and other developments have played key parts in the regeneration of Leith. The now-decommissioned Former Royal Yacht Britannia is permanently berthed next to the building. It can be accessed via the Britannia Visitor Centre within Ocean Terminal, and can be viewed from the centre.

Although originally planned to also function as a working passenger terminal, the permanent berthing of the Britannia has meant that the building has never been used for this function, despite its name.
