Opening Up the Waterfront

Opening Up the Waterfront

We are delighted that the masterplan to transform Ocean Terminal has passed another significant milestone with the approval of a detailed phase one planning application by City of Edinburgh Council on 21st September.

The plans enable the first phase of the centre’s transformation, opening up the Leith waterfront and creating a new community-led complex which prioritises the people who live and work in the area.

The consented plans were lodged in March this year by the centre’s Scottish owners, Ambassador Group, following extensive consultation, including two public exhibitions, which have shown strong support for the new vision for the area. Under the approved scheme, the north end of the existing centre will be demolished and a new frontage constructed, with retail and hospitality units looking out on to new public realm.

Detailed plans for phase two, the construction of a mixed-use development comprising a range of housing, commercial units and public realm with a new walkway and cycle tracks along the water line, can now be finalised for submission to the council this winter.

This is an exciting new chapter for Ocean Terminal!
