Cruden Group has been selected after a competitive procurement process.

The Council will work with the company to take forward the pre-development works of the project over the next few years.

These works include detailed designs for approximately 750 net-zero homes, a new and enhanced sustainable transport infrastructure, commercial space, and public realm areas that will connect the surrounding neighbourhoods with the Granton Waterfront.

A new school and medical centre will also be delivered in the first phase of the project.

The Council and Cruden Group will work together to bring forward a low-carbon energy solution for the first and future phases of the project.

This will contribute to achieving the Council’s target of reaching net-zero emissions by next year. 

Cruden Group director Fraser Lynes said: “We are excited to reimagine Granton Waterfront and create a brand-new coastal quarter that champions sustainable waterfront living with net-zero carbon homes, just three miles from the city centre.

“This new approach to urban development is transformational and will provide a blueprint for the future as we reconnect the Capital to the Firth of Forth and create a new coastal neighbourhood, which will become one of Europe’s largest coastal amenities.”

The company will bring architects Smith Scott Mullan on board. Scandinavian architect C. F. Møller will also work on the project.

Granton Waterfront is located three miles north of Edinburgh’s City Centre.
