Work starts on Edinburgh Park, set to create over 5,000 new jobs – The Scotsman

The Scotsman recently featured the progress of Parabola’s Edinburgh Park development, which has begun at 1 New Park Square. Scott Reid, deputy business editor at Scotland’s national newspaper, highlighted that the development will be capable of operating with a net zero carbon footprint and has the potential to create nearly 5,500 jobs for Edinburgh.

Further studies have shown that when the development is complete, the total number of job opportunities will increase to up to 7,000.

Peter Millican, owner and founder of Parabola, was quoted in the piece and said: "Parabola is delighted that we shall be starting work on the first phase of this vital new quarter of the city.”

Parabola’s Managing Director Tony Hordon also added: "We have a wonderful opportunity now to deliver an exemplar in commercial space and public realm so desperately needed by the city.”

Edinburgh Park launches creative residencies in poetry and photography

Two new creative opportunities have been announced in conjunction with Parabola’s Edinburgh Park development.

In collaboration with Stills, Parabola is supporting an early career photographer to capture Edinburgh Park and examine its relationship to the city centre, whether that be culturally, historically or geographically. The deadline for applications is 15th September, to begin in November 2019 and remuneration for the project also covers printing and framing costs for an exhibition in 2020.

Parabola is also commissioning a poet to produce a long poem in conjunction with Turner Prize-winning architect David Mach’s new multipurpose building Mach 1. The poet, who will also be in the early stage of their career, will receive £3000 for their piece which will be performed at Mach 1 in early summer 2020.
