For residents, it means contemporary canalside living. For workers, it’s a place of vibrant opportunity. For the council, it’s a long-term civic investment. One that promises long-term economic, civic and financial benefits for the city. For others, the reward will be the revival of the canal as a focus of Edinburgh life and as a visitor attraction.
To some, though, India Quay will hold special significance as an exciting hub of business growth.
Locating in Fountainbridge was part of a long-term strategy and we welcome this development. We see the canal basin and the surrounding area as part of Edinburgh’s growing restaurant offer.
As a business that specialises in commercial design and refurbishment, being situated in an increasingly vibrant and professional part of town helps to match our brand and services to a relevant market.
In a historic setting, we’re building a world-class arts centre to bring world-leading art into Fountainbridge. This exciting new centre will spread the joy of making and seeing contemporary art.
Location is vital to my success, and I can reach everyone from students to large commercial clients in Fountainbridge. I’m excited about developing and expanding my business from such an inspiring area.
Fountainbridge is up-and-coming. Monday to Friday, it’s a bustle of students, office workers and residents, plus walkers and cyclists along the canal. At the weekend, it’s home to tourists. All happily welcomed by Loudons.
We are fully committed to delivering a sustainable exemplary development at India Quay which will support the creation of 1450 new full time jobs in Edinburgh and bring a total of 405 new homes for our residents. Construction will begin in 2016 in what will be the most exciting new development in Edinburgh embracing place-making at it’s heart.
