Tiger Developments & Interserve has marked a major milestone in construction by ‘breaking ground’ as it progresses onto the next major development phase.
On track for completion of the first office H5 building in 2018, the development will consist of prime office, retail and leisure space including a hotel and apart-hotel. It is considered to be Edinburgh’s best-connected office location within minutes of the Haymarket Station and tram stop linking the city to Edinburgh Airport within 20 minutes.
Welcomed by the City of Edinburgh Council, the development will not only transform a prime site in the city’s West End, which has been derelict for decades, but also create much-needed quality office space.
Graham Haydon-White, development director at Tiger Developments, said: “The importance of this milestone cannot be underestimated, not only are we starting the removal of original tunnel earthworks dating back as far as 1840; it also clearly demonstrates our full commitment behind this landmark scheme as it advances towards phase one delivery in 2018. With the stage one build contract now in place, we are uniquely placed ahead of any other major mixed-use development in the capital.”
