Future Cities Forum Awards

Posted on December 15, 2022

Delighted to share the news that Granton Waterfront Strategic Plan for The City of Edinburgh Council has won a Future Cities Forum awards, in the Master planning, regeneration & mixed-use category.

projects spread across 7 Future Cities Forum categories were assessed by the Awards Judging Panel of 9 distinguished judges from across the UK.

Deborah Williams, Head of Region - Midlands, Historic England: 'Edinburgh's Granton Waterfront has job creation, strong net zero ambitions, and a vision of delivering a heritage programme. The creating of place is very important. Identifiably it's a development from where it is, rather than just anywhere.'

Helen Taylor of Practice, Scott Brownrigg: 'The threads - in the master-plan document - on the fabric of space is very good. You can forget the other parts of Edinburgh (when you visit the city centre) so connecting Granton Waterfront is very important'.

Jude Barber, Director, Collective Architecture said 'It is wonderful to hear that Granton Waterfront Strategic Plan has been recognised with this award. We thoroughly enjoyed developing this with The City of Edinburgh Council, partners, locals, Studio for New Realities and the wider design team. The ambitious masterplan/strategic framework sets the scene for the development of Granton as a vibrant and inclusive coastal neighbourhood, rooted in its place, with a bright and promising future.'
