Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The subject property comprises substantially vacant land which forms part of The Forthquarter regeneration area. Landowner National Grid Property has undertaken an extensive programme of site clearance and remediation, and has initiated a mixed use redevelopment including residential, offices, retail, leisure, and education. The remaining land is a prime development opportunity in the busy Granton Waterfront development zone, which is currently experiencing wide ranging regeneration.
The Forthquarter site is an exceptional opportunity to secure a strategic land holding in one of the areas best positioned to respond to Edinburgh’s high demand for housing, which envisages the need for a further 3,526 households per annum until 2035.

Location Description

The Forthquarter is located 2.7 miles north of the city centre, looking out over Scotland’s iconic Firth of Forth and beyond to Fife. To the west, the city’s attractive Crammond and Barnton areas offer high value housing and amenities including three excellent golf courses. To the east is the balance of the Granton Waterfront redevelopment area, where land owners including City of Edinburgh Council are evolving and delivering development of infrastructure, residential, and commercial space including the new National Collections Facility for the National Gallery, and significant new build housing development. At Granton Harbour, located immediately to the north east, there are proposals for a marina, residential, and retail/leisure project. Some 2.4 miles to the east, Leith offers an attractive historic centre populated with small businesses, cafes and bars, as well as the Ocean Terminal shopping centre and the Scottish Office headquarters.
