Vastint Hospitality started construction of the first phase of the New Fountainbridge project in April 2019. The redevelopment of this centrally located site in Edinburgh, will create a lively and new mixed-use neighbourhood. Vastint will deliver in a first phase a 262 room Moxy hotel and restaurant fronting a new civic space, together with a landmark 5.532 m² office building. Located besides Edinburgh’s financial district and next to Union Canal, the office space is expected to attract a mix of both corporates and small businesses to support Edinburgh’s thriving creative and tech sectors. The site used to be home to the North British Rubber Company and Scottish and Newcastle Breweries. The video in the link to the website on the right, shows how the area is changing rapidly. The first phase is completed and Moxy Edinburgh Fountainbridge opened its doors on February 17th 2021.
