Oberlanders Architects LLP outline planning consent for the site at Fountainbridge 

Detailed planning applications are now submitted for three sections of the £200m scheme that will transform the former brewery site in Fountainbridge in one of Edinburgh’s biggest city centre developments in recent years. Oberlanders Architects LLP together with their clients Grosvenor Estates, AMA and the Royal Bank of Scotland gained outline planning consent for the masterplan in January 2006. The site will contain a total 650 homes, offices and retail spaces. The coming months will see the gradual transformation of this 8 acre industrial landscape; previously unseen vistas will open and reveal just how much of the city is currently isolated and cut off, revealing the vast potential for stitching this area of the city back together and bringing permeability and movement of people from one part of the city to another. The first phase of development will see the existing Brandfield Street and Upper Grove Place sympathetically extended to create a unique and unified new neighbourhood. Both streets will lead to a striking new urban space, a linear park, open to all, with landscaping, trees, seating and a safe and secure children’s play area. Lining these streets and square, the proposed new buildings will be contemporary interpretations of the much-loved traditional Edinburgh tenement.
