Designed by 7N Architects, a new ten-storey 183,000 sq.ft. net office and nine-storey hotel of around 197 rooms at 20 Haymarket Yards is being brought forward by Stamford Property Holdings, after being given the green light by City of Edinburgh Council. Construction is due to start in 2024.
The approved planning application, granted subject to conditions, includes the demolition of the low-rise and outdated Elgin House office building, which lies close to Haymarket Station.
Commenting on this, Stamford Property Holdings Uri Goldberg said, “Our development will regenerate and intensify a current brownfield site in Edinburgh City Centre, meeting a significant demand for a new kind of workspace that is sustainable and enhances the wellbeing of occupiers, designed to be amongst the highest standards of ESG compliant developments coming forward.
“Addressing a growing demand for modern office workspaces in this historic city, this will help to retain and create jobs in the city centre. Additionally, our hotel offering serves to address a clear need for bed spaces. This will allow people to work and stay in the city centre, supporting local businesses.
“Located at a key public transport hub at Haymarket, and with high-quality public realm on offer, this net-zero development will adopt extensive energy efficiency measures and renewable energy strategies, playing an important role in helping to achieve Edinburgh’s drive towards becoming a Net Zero city by 2030.
“We are keen to discuss the opportunities on offer with any potential occupiers.”
The offices are being marketed by Mike Irvine of Savills and Chris Dougray of CBRE.
