Green light for major Edinburgh mixed-use scheme
Proposals for a mixed-use development including a hotel and office space at 20 Haymarket Yards have received planning permission from the City of Edinburgh Council.
The ten-storey, 17,000m2 office space and the nine-storey, 197-bedroom hotel will be designed by 7N Architects and is being developed by Stamford Property Holdings.
Planning permission granted demolition of the low-rise Elgin House office building and construction of the new complex, which is due to start in 2024.
Aiming to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the project will feature energy efficiencies such as insulated built fabric, air source heat pumps and solar panels.
Uri Goldberg, Principal Owner of Stamford Property Holdings, 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.”
