India Quay

Edinburgh, UK

MRG Studio provided landscape design to support 7N Architects on India Quay, a mixed-use development in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh.

The consultant team, led by 7N Architects, has recently received detailed planning approval on the first phase of the masterplan, which will deliver 434 new homes (inc. 25.8% affordable) along with retail and community spaces along the Union Canal waterfront.

MRG Studio was engaged to design the landscape and public realm, which includes a waterfront promenade and public spaces, residential streets and courtyard gardens. The scheme incorporates richly layered planting and water features in a SUDS design that reflects the site’s natural, industrial and agricultural heritage in a contemporary urban setting.

The commercial side has now been submitted for planning.
