Mixed use Princes Street project progresses
November 21 2012
This will allow a complete rebuild of the property, including a two-storey extension to the existing Victorian property, to house a hotel, whilst basement, ground and first floors will offer new retail provision.
Occupying a prime spot adjacent to an A listed Adam Smith building the scheme is rising directly opposite the Waverley Steps and has been given the green light by Historic Scotland.
Project architect Rachel Colbert, of CDA, told Urban Realm: “Currently the building is in a shell state having had the internal walls / floors removed. The external walls along three elevations are at present held up by façade retention. The hotel lift core is well underway and all foundations work has now been complete with the basement slab being re-laid in December.
"In the New Year we will start to see the building rise again from basement level.”
Completion is scheduled for September next year.
