Creative plan brewing for old S&N

A new hub for the creative industries and the performing arts is being planned on the site of a former brewing plant.

Edinburgh's canal district in the Fountainbridge area would become home to an "iconic" new cultural building as part of a drive to restore the fortunes of the former industrial area.

The former Scottish & Newcastle brewery has been lying empty for more than five years after being shut down by the brewing giant.

But now a huge chunk of land at the end of the Edinburgh-Glasgow canal link could become home to performers, artists, designers, computer gaming experts and architects.
