RTKL appointed as master-planner for the regeneration of Britannia Quay and Waterfront Plaza in Edinburgh
RTKL will be charged with designing a development plan for the first two villages of the proposed £700m project, named ‘The Hub,’ to coincide with the regions supplementary planning guidance and the Western Harbour masterplan produced by UK-based architects, RMJM and Robert Adam. The regeneration will include residential, retail and commercial development.
RTKL is well known for its work in designing the regeneration of the US city of Baltimore.
Nathan Thomson, managing director at Forth Properties, the property arm of Forth Ports, said: ‘We recently visited Baltimore to see first hand the very positive impact of RTKL’s input in regenerating urban spaces and linking a city centre to its waterfront. We believe they are the best firm to take forward these initial phases.’
