With the new Marina Development in Granton given the go ahead in 2016, we are now starting to see what is really in store for the regeneration.
Reports today – tell that as well as the proposed commercial, retail and leisure plans of the £500 million redevelopment, we can also expect a Luxury Retirement Village.
The 104-home development on the Granton waterfront will include a library, landscaped gardens and a 24-hour concierge service for residents. It will be exclusively for residents over the age of 55 and will provide a new kind of retirement experience for the residents of Edinburgh. Plans also include a bistro, sauna and cinema within the retirement village, all reserved for private use of it’s residents.
Just 2 miles from Edinburgh’s city centre it is also hoped that the tramlines will eventually extend to Granton, giving the area even better connections to the rest of the city.
Full plans of the Luxury Retirement Village are expected early this year.
