Hampton by Hilton, Fountainbridge
ICA were approached in 2015 to internally reconfigure and deliver a consented hotel proposal within the fountainbridge area of Edinburgh’s city centre. The original 2013 consent was for a 178 bed hotel. A significant redesign of the hotels internal layout was undertaken focusing primarily on floor plan efficiency including services, circulation & bedroom numbers. Within the same envelope and fundamentally within the existing planning consent a 228 bed Hampton by Hilton hotel has been achieved.
The site lies on a key arterial route at the intersection of Foutainbridge and Melvin walk and is within short walking distance of the key transport interchange, Haymarket station. The hotel will form part of the wider regeneration of the former light industrial area of Fountainbridge. When completed, the development will provide onsite meeting facilities, a fitness suite and a standalone café/restaurant unit.
