Updated plans revealed for 464-home Fountainbridge development
7N Architects has lodged an updated planning application for four residential plots in the City of Edinburgh Council’s regeneration project at Fountainbridge.
The project is being developed in partnership with Cruden Homes East (Ltd) and Buccleuch Property.
The submission forms part of the pre-development agreement between the council and the development partners to regenerate the canalside site as a ‘vibrant, liveable, neighbourhood’ providing 464 new homes, including 40% affordable homes, a community growing space and new civic spaces.
Nicholas Taggart, project leader at 7N, said: “It’s been a long road since the original community workshops that 7N facilitated in 2013, but we are excited that the community’s vision has taken the next crucial step towards being delivered.”
The application builds on a 2019 submission to adopt current thinking for the major development site, Urban Realm reports.
Landscape architects Raeburn Farquhar Bowen have developed a largely car-free environment, with the bulk of limited parking located on a basement level below a landscaped deck.
