Site plan moves ahead
C&W to advise on airport development
Cushman & Wakefield has been appointed to advise on plans to develop 90 acres of land at Edinburgh airport.
The site will be released following closure of the airport’s little-used secondary ‘crosswind’ runway.
The plans for the site were unveiled last month. It stretches from south-east of the passenger terminal towards the Gogar roundabout, where the bypass meets the A8.
As part of its plans Edinburgh Airport’s newly formed company Crosswind Developments has already stated it intends to fund a new terminal access road.
The area has seen the development of the Edinburgh Gateway Station, the tram-train interchange which opened in December with direct links to the city centre as well as north to Fife and beyond.
Construction on the development site could start next year if planning permission is approved.
It follows a similar plan for a £700 million commercial and residential development unveiled in 2015 which did not proceed.
Speaking of the appointment of Cushman & Wakefield, Crosswinds CEO John Watson said: “We look forward to working together to create a sustainable development.”
