Planning application submitted for an office-led campus development at Edinburgh Green

7N Architects have submitted a planning application for an office-led campus development at Edinburgh Green in the South Gyle area of West Edinburgh. The proposals will deliver 7 no. new office buildings, a multi-use pavilion and mobility hub.

Arranged around a richly landscaped campus, the buildings have been designed with a focus on the well-being of the occupiers, sustainability and connectivity to public transport and the wider community.

Brian Rabinowitz, director at Shelborn, said: “This is one of the most ambitious office developments to be launched in Edinburgh for decades and our plans for Europe’s largest electric vehicle charging hub is key to meeting our ambitious 2030 net zero target.

“Sustainability will be at the heart of this development, which promises to be a game-changer by transforming the common perception of what an office workspace should look like. It will boast modern office accommodation surrounded by spacious landscaped parkland and a range of on-site facilities such as a multi-use pavilion, café/events space, and comprehensive transport links. As Edinburgh’s market continues to grow post-pandemic, public and private sector occupiers are demanding a better-quality workspace which give their employees better places to work.

“Edinburgh Green is seeking to respond directly to this, creating a new kind of workspace that optimises a well-connected brownfield site, complete with all the amenities and functionality demanded by both employer and employee alike.”
