Visions

 

Edinburgh Waterfront  -  Aerial Photo, 2001 Based on an aerial photo by XYZ:     Copyright: XYZ Digital Map Company Limited Click here for details of web site.

Edinburgh Waterfront is a large area of land beside the Firth of Forth, extending from Muirhouse in the west to Granton Harbour in the east.

The land is in three parts, each under different ownership.  Each of the owners has announced a vision for their area.  Please see  below for further details of

1.  Edinburgh Waterfront:  West

2.  Edinburgh Waterfront:  Central

3.  Edinburgh Waterfront:  East

 

1.

EDINBURGH WATERFRONT:  WEST

Scottish Gas Works site including the old gasometers

 

    Edinburgh Waterfront  -  Scottish Gas Office  -  The first new building to be created on the Waterfront site -  22 Jine 2004

Forthquarter are managing the development in this part of Edinburgh Waterfront.

-   The first building created was a new Head Office for Scottish Gas. 

-   A new University Complex for Telford College and a new park are due to open in Summer 2006.

 

2.

EDINBURGH WATERFRONT:  CENTRAL

The area around Waterfront Avenue  and Saltire Square

 

   Edinburgh Waterfront  -  The sculpture 'Going to the Beach' in the centre of Saltire Square

Waterfront Edinburgh is managing developments in this part of Edinburgh Waterfront.

-  Construction began with the creation of  Waterfront Avenue and Saltire Square.  New housing is now being built around Saltire Square, and major landmark buildings are envisaged at the western side of Granton Square and on a new island proposed for the Firth of Forth. 

See the artist's impression and the initial plans for this island, below.  However, following criticism of the initial plans, the latest proposals, at March 2006, are to create a more craggy island, possibly thistle shaped.  [Edinburgh Evening News  March 22, 2006:  p.3]

A new 'Teardrop Island' proposed for the Firth of Forth

The latest plans now envisage a more craggy island, possibly thistle-shaped

3.

EDINBURGH WATERFRONT:  EAST

Granton Western Harbour

 

     View to the north from Edinburgh Castle  -  August 2004

Forth Ports Authority are managing developments in this part of Edinburgh Waterfront.

- Construction has begun.  Some of the roads have been laid out.  The first apartments at the southern end of Granton Middle Pier, close to Granton Square are due to be occupied during 2006.

-  Other apartments have been built on the western side of Middle Pier, close to the Royal Forth Yacht Club clubhouse.   The map below gives an indication of the proposed layout, and the much reduced harbour size with its new moorings.  Unfortunately the legends on this plan are barely legible

Forth Ports Authority have also announced plans for developments in Leith Western Harbour and Port of Leith (part of Leith Docks).  They have branded all three of their developments as 'Edinburgh Forthside'
