Quote:
McLaughlin & Harvey has been appointed as the main contractor for the first phase of works on Edinburgh Marina.

The Phase One works, valued at over £175 million, involve the construction of the new 373 berth Edinburgh Marina and the new 187 bedroom Hyatt Regency Spa & Conference Hotel with 98 serviced apartments, the Royal Wharf Living for Retirement residential scheme and three residential apartment blocks, comprising a further 338 apartments.

Philip Cheevers, managing Director at McLaughlin & Harvey said, “We are delighted to be part of the delivery team for Edinburgh Marina which is one of Scotland’s most exciting new development projects.

“At McLaughlin & Harvey we pride ourselves on considerate and responsible construction, and our approach to Edinburgh Marina is no different. We look forward to starting on site to ensure the developer’s vision becomes reality.”

Matthew Garstang, finance director at developer Edinburgh Marina Holdings added, “We are extremely pleased to have appointed McLaughlin & Harvey as the main contractor for the first phase of the landmark Edinburgh Marina development. Their track record and experience will help us deliver this world-class development which will create much needed new homes, as well as unique leisure and commercial facilities for the Scottish capital.”

On twitter, one of the councillors tweeted that neither the marina club house nor the Hyatt hotel were the “centerpieces” of the waterfront development. But it seems to me that remaining plots are now scarce.. and what development has been proposed/suggested?

I can't help you there unfortunately.

Makes more sense if they were talking about location rather than grandiosity. These are peripheral but possibly the boldest statements, even if the Hyatt is a statement form another era.

For all the plans for many different plots upthread, I still don't have a particularly clear sense in my head of how it will all pan out when complete.

Licence to Sail for Edinburgh Marina

Marine Industry News - 15th April 2019

Quote:
Edinburgh Marina, Scotland’s premier new waterside destination development, confirmed today that it has now been granted its marine works licence by Marine Scotland for the new world-class Edinburgh Marina located less than 2.5 miles from Edinburgh city centre. The grant of this licence paves the way for the construction of the new state-of-the-art 373 berth Edinburgh Marina which, once complete, will provide 24/7 access to the sea at all states of tide.

The new Edinburgh Marina has been specifically designed to surpass the Yacht Harbour Association’s 5 Gold Anchor rating, complete with a purpose-built Clubhouse with brasserie restaurant and bar, and a fully stocked chandlery shop; externally there will be a fully serviced boatyard and dry-stack operation. The Clubhouse has recently been granted detailed planning permission for its re-location immediately adjacent to Edinburgh Marina’s new Hyatt Regency Spa and Conference Hotel. Yacht owners and visitors will be able to benefit from on-board food & drink service and concierge services, as well as access to the Hotel spa and gym.

The centrepiece marina will be served by The Clubhouse which is complete with male and female changing and locker rooms, ideal when preparing for or returning from a day on the water. The facility also includes private function and dining space for evening receptions, parties and meetings.

Located in Granton’s Western Harbour, the new Marina will form the centrepiece of the Edinburgh Marina development which will see the creation of over 1,850 new homes for Edinburgh. In addition to the state-of-the-art Edinburgh Marina, the development includes; Royal Wharf – the luxury living for retirement scheme, new homes for sale and for rent, the new Hyatt Regency Spa and Conference hotel, and the Chestnut Yard medical hub and neighbourhood shopping. Phase one of the development will create over 800 permanent employment opportunities for the local community, alongside high percentages of affordable homes.

Kevin Fawcett of Edinburgh Marina Holdings commented: “The grant of the marine works licence is one small step for Edinburgh Marina and a giant leap for the city of Edinburgh as work can now begin on creating a high-class facility for boating enthusiasts. We are delighted that Marine Scotland has put their faith in our project which will enable Edinburgh to compete for a large share of the country’s £3.7bn marine tourism industry.

“It must be said that Edinburgh Marina is more than a place to sail, our vision from the outset was to create a waterside destination that takes advantage of Edinburgh’s rich cultural appeal, whilst opening up a new route to Edinburgh Waterfront’s stunning stretch of coastline.”

Application for Plots 29 & 35 - 108 unit residential block & Hyatt Regency hotel (amended design images here) - has been recommended for refusal by planning officers due to a lengthy list of LDP contraventions. Determination due next week.

Quote:
Summary

The proposed uses as hotel, serviced apartments and residential development are compliant with those in the approved masterplan. The uses also accordance with the provisions of LDP policy Del 3 (Edinburgh Waterfront) and the LDP Edinburgh Waterfront principles for development for Granton Harbour.

However, the proposed layout of the development is contrary to the provisions of LDP Policy Del 3 (Edinburgh Waterfront) and LDP Policy Des 2 (Co-ordinated Development) as it fails to provide a comprehensively designed proposal which accords with the Edinburgh Waterfront - Principles of Development for Granton Harbour, including the completion of the perimeter block form and providing the relevant section of the waterside promenade.

The proposals for plots 29 and 35 are contrary to LDP Policy Des 3 (Development Design - Incorporating and Enhancing Existing Features) as it has not been demonstrated how the height, positioning and design of these buildings would protect or enhance local views which contribute to the sense of place, in this case at Granton Harbour and waterside locations.

Furthermore, the proposals are contrary to LDP Policy Des 4 (Development Design - Impact on Setting) as it has not been sufficiently demonstrated how the resulting impacts of both buildings' height and massing would impact on their surroundings, including wider townscape and landscape and views.

The lack of active frontages at the proposed hotel development, raises significant concerns regarding opportunities for enlivening the streetscape and providing passive surveillance, as promoted under LDP Policy Des 5 - Development Design- Amenity). The lack of opportunities for passive surveillance at plot 29, also conflicts with the provisions of this policy.

The proposals for plot 35 are also considered contrary to the provisions of LDP Des 1 (Design Quality and Context), owing to the impacts of its substantial height, scale, massing and design and limited active frontage provision on the character, appearance and sense of place at this prominent, waterfront location. The proposals are further contrary to the provisions of LDP Policy Des 10 (Waterside Development) as it has not been found to provide an attractive frontage to the waterside, as provided for under this policy.

The proposals for pedestrian and cycle access are contrary to the provisions of LDP Policy Des 7 (Layout Design) which promotes walking, cycling and the provision of safe and convenient access in and around the development site, with particular regard to the needs of people with limited mobility or special needs, owing to the shortcomings identified.

The proposed level of parking provision throughout the application site, which exceeds the maximum level required in the Edinburgh Design Guidance, is contrary to the provisions of DLP Policy Tra 2 (Private Car Parking) and fails to comply with the Council's wider strategy of encouraging the use of journeys made by more sustainable transport modes.

The quantity of private open space meets the level of requirement under LDP Policy Hou 3 (Private Open Space). However, the layout of the public open space is considered contrary to the provisions of LDP Policy Des 7 (f) (Layout Design) and LDP Policy Env 20 (Open Space in New Developments) as it fails to provide safe and suitable connections to pedestrian and cycle routes, around the site.

The proposals are also contrary to the provisions of LDP Policy Des 5 (Development Design- Amenity) as insufficient information has been submitted to demonstrate that neighbouring amenity would be adequately safeguarded and that daylight provision for future occupiers would be provided, in accordance with the provisions of the Edinburgh Design Guidance.

The hotel, plus the residential development on Plot 29, were refused at last week's Development Management Sub-Committee meeting.

MSI replace Camper & Nicholsons Marinas at Edinburgh project

International Boat Industry - 30th April 2019

Quote:
Just over a year since it was announced that Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (CNM) had been appointed to design and manage the new 300+ berth Edinburgh Marina, their role has been taken over by MSI (Marina Solutions International).

Neither CNM or Edinburgh Marina Granton Harbour Ltd, the developer for the major new propject for the Scottish capital, were open to making any comment about the change.

MSI is a relatively new company in the marina business having been incorporated in February 2017. Its two partners, James Beaver and William Green are both long-standing marina consultants who both, ironically, have worked for CNM.

In a statement Edinburgh Marina today (April 30, 2019) confirmed that it had appointed MSI as its specialist marina consultant. “MSI, which operates on a global scale,” the statement added: “provides dedicated turnkey services to marina developers from feasibility and concept designs, right through to commissioning and operational management.”

A spokesperson for Edinburgh Marina said: “We have appointed MSI due to the firm’s experience and long association with the marine leisure industry. It serves a high-quality client base, and the skills of the partners fit well with what we require to assist us to deliver the development of the new Edinburgh Marina.”

The spokesperson added: “Now that MSI is onboard it will be working alongside the main contractor, McLaughlin & Harvey, finalising design details, dealing with procurement and project managing the specific construction aspects of the marina, and thereafter commissioning it in readiness for operations.”

For MSI, Green commented: “We are delighted with our appointment as consultants to Edinburgh Marina. There is already a great management team and other professionals in place, with whom we look forward to working with. Edinburgh Marina is a rare and unique marina development opportunity; it is to be the marina for the capital city of Scotland.”

“Our brief from the developer,” he added: “is to see that the new Edinburgh Marina is designed to the highest standards, thereby providing service levels which will be unsurpassed. The yacht owners of Scotland and the Borders can therefore look forward to a centre of excellence on the east coast, and visiting yachtsmen and yachtswomen from further afield will be able to enjoy a first-class facility with access to a safe berth, at all states of the tide.”

There was no mention regarding the management of the new marina after it is completed. When the announcement was made in March 2018 about CNM working on the development the working was that it had been appointed to ‘design, commission, manage and operate the new Edinburgh Marina.’

The new Edinburgh marina in addition to 300+ fully serviced berths is reportedly being designed to surpass The Yacht Harbour Association’s 5-Gold Anchor Award rating. It will include a modern marina office; fully-serviced boatyard and dry-stack operation and additionally there will be secure parking with optional storage.

The marina will be located immediately next to the Edinburgh Marina Spa and Conference Hotel, so yacht owners will be able to benefit from on-board food & drink service and concierge services, as well as access to the hotel spa and gym. Adjacent to the new Marina are a number of domestic residences where prospective owners will have the opportunity to reserve a marina berth when purchasing their apartment.

What plots, in your opinions, would be best to buy a 1 or 2 bed flat/house in future in this area?
