Ocean Terminal to inform the local community of future developments

Ambassador Group, owner of Ocean Terminal, presents new details of its vision to transform the center and open up the waterfront.

A public exhibition begins today and continues through December 31 during the centre’s opening hours, allowing residents to examine redevelopment plans and share their views.

A new layout and redesign is aimed at opening up views, including new aspects of the Royal Yacht Britannia, offering waterfront seating and creating an unobstructed promenade along the water’s edge.

The mixed offer, made possible by the demolition of the existing parking lot in the East, will combine shops and tourism, leisure, work space for small businesses and residential housing.

Sustainability is the key to development and has been placed at the heart of the design to ensure the project meets Edinburgh City Council’s net zero goals for 2030.

This ties into connectivity, creating a design for the new ocean terminal to meet the needs of the 20-minute neighborhood.

Chris Richardson, Managing Director of Ambassador Investments, said: “We have said from the start that we want to work closely with the local community and stakeholders, to ensure that together we create a front-end experience of sustainable and attractive sea for the people of Leith and Edinburgh. , which introduces more interaction with space than ever before.

“This is an exciting new chapter for Ocean Terminal as we embark on a significant change that will secure its place on the waterfront in the future – through the diversity of retail, tourism offerings. , leisure and well-being, it will become the place to be. “
