Waterfront Edinburgh is a redevelopment of parts of Edinburgh along the shores of the Firth of Forth in Granton. There are three main landowners: Arcus (formerly Forth Ports), National Grid plc and City of Edinburgh Council. Since the area was masterplanned in the early 2000s it has undergone significant change with approximately 1400 new homes in the Granton area, new food retail stores, the new Telford College at Granton, and approximately 16,000 square metres (170,000 sq ft) of commercial office space.
A new road, Waterfront Avenue, has been constructed at Granton along with a 110 acres (45 ha) public park as part of National Grid’s Forthquarter development.
Following the recession of 2008 a new Area Development Framework has been prepared by the planning authority reflecting a flexible approach to future development.
