Construction work kicks off at £200m Haymarket development
Construction work has commenced on a £200m development adjacent to Haymarket Station which will ultimately play host to commercial accommodation, leisure space, a 165 bed hotel and underground car park.

Preparatory work on railway tunnels beneath the four-acre site is now underway  and is expected to take a year to complete and will run in tandem with an archaeological dig on the site of an existing car park.

Interserve development director, David Westwater, said: “This agreement with Network Rail to start work on the site represents a significant milestone for one of Edinburgh’s last remaining gap sites.

“We are looking forward to completing the underground works during 2014, allowing for above-ground construction to start in early 2015.

Commissioned by Interserve and Tiger Developments the first phase of the Richard Murphy designed scheme is scheduled to complete in 2016.

More go anywhere architecture .No sense of place, no rhythm in the street scene and trees shown far too close to the building on a north elevation where they will supposedly flourish shaded from sunlight. Super stuff , another real triumph.
