Parabola ‘pleased’ to be named a 'UK business hero'

Managing Director of Parabola, Tony Hordon, has dedicated the award as a 'UK Business Hero' from The British Chamber of Commerce to his “outstanding team”. Parabola is one of only five Edinburgh businesses recognised in the UK award which recognises the "incredible work that UK businesses are doing in the most challenging of years."

Commenting on the award, Tony Hordon said:

“We are so pleased to be recognised by the Chamber of Commerce for our work in Edinburgh. It is all about teamwork and I am delighted to accept the honour on behalf of our outstanding team of passionate people dedicated to advancing with our ambitious plans for a new quarter of the city. Through our construction and development team, our speculative office development 1 New Park Square is being built and our planning application for Parabola’s vision for Edinburgh Park is set to be determined later this year. We have a wonderful opportunity now to deliver an exemplar community so desperately needed by the city – it is such a fitting tribute to be awarded as a Business Hero as a recognition of the dedication and hard work of our team.”

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.”
