Projects / New Fountainbridge Phase 1, Edinburgh
Vastint Hospitality B.V.
New Fountainbridge is a mixed use development comprising a Moxy hotel, Grade A office, 240 BTR units, small units for business, retail, social enterprise and community uses set within a public realm masterplan of pedestrian routes and green spaces which will re-connect Fountainbridge to the Union Canal. 3DReid worked collaboratively with Vastint Hospitality on the development masterplan and design of both phases.
The first phase to be delivered comprises a hotel and 5,500sqm of much needed Grade A office space above commercial and retail units plus a dynamic and inclusive public realm.
The Moxy at Fountainbridge provides 262 guestrooms and exciting public space including a roof top bar, a key focus of the new brand. Communal services will include ‘grab & go’ food facilities, tech enabled work spaces, lounge areas, games and bar. Links to Fountainbridge’s rich industrial heritage will be referenced in the hotel interiors.
Innovations & added value
This project represents the regeneration of an important city centre brownfield site which has sat empty for 10 years. We have taken the opportunity to improve connections between Fountainbridge, Merchiston and Bruntsfield to the city centre whilst energising the canal towpath and Fountainbridge itself.
Buildings are set within a public realm framework comprising a sequence of Terraced Streets, Civic Spaces, Courtyards and Garden Areas that are designed to provide a network of pedestrian and cycle routes to re-connect the Canal Towpath to Fountainbridge and the surrounding neighbourhoods.
Phase 1 started on site in April 2019
Phase 2 has planning approval
