The Communication Group plc has been appointed to manage the PR for Edinburgh Marina, a £500 million waterside quarter development close to Edinburgh’s city centre. Developed by Edinburgh Marina Holdings, the new Edinburgh Marina development will include a wide range of high-end leisure and accommodation facilities, situated adjacent to Edinburgh’s first ever purpose-built luxury marina.
The Communication Group plc is delighted to work on the project that is set to enable Scotland’s capital to compete with the more established west coast sailing destinations, generating a significant boost to the country’s £3.7bn marine tourism industry.
Detailed planning consent has been granted for the centrepiece marina, forming part of the masterplan for the wider 28 hectare site Edinburgh Marina Development that was granted in 2017. Living for Retirement©, the development’s luxury scheme for the over 55s, has also been granted full planning permission and will comprise 104 apartments, with a wide range of amenities specifically tailored to its residents. Once complete, Edinburgh Marina will also include a purpose-built Spa and Conference Hotel.
Commenting on the launch of Edinburgh Marina, developer Kevin Fawcett said: “The new world-class Edinburgh Marina at Granton’s Western Harbour is the most important new marina development in the UK for several decades. It harks back to a long and distinguished international maritime connection that Edinburgh and Granton Harbour once enjoyed, it will help to re-establish Edinburgh’s maritime economy as well as creating a vibrant new city quarter that will enhance Edinburgh’s reputation as one of the UK’s most attractive lifestyle destinations.”
