Stalled Haymarket plans finally advance
April 4 2013Haymarket Station have been resuscitated by construction group Interserve who have formed a new joint venture company with landowner Tiger Developments to take the £200m scheme forward.
Planning permission is already in place for a rejigged scheme by Richard Murphy Architects and CDA following an extended battle with heritage groups which saw initial mover to erect a 17 storey tower element cut down to size.
The scheme is already 20% pre-let, signifying the health of the Edinburgh property market, with chains such as Prezzo & Pret a Manger agreeing to lease space.
Adrian Ringrose, CEO of Interserve, said: "Edinburgh's Haymarket site remains one of the best city centre developments schemes to be found anywhere in the UK. It will provide a strategic gateway for the city centre, linking seamlessly with one of Scotland's busiest railway stations, as well as being adjacent to the city's new tram network.
"The proposals for a mix of leisure, retail and office space, linked by open public spaces, will act as a catalyst to regenerate the commercial heart of the area as well as create jobs.”
