De Vere Group secures planning for Edinburgh hotel
July 9 2013secured planning permission to build a 120 bedroom hotel at Crewe Road South, Edinburgh, designed by 3DReid Architects.
Valued at £20m the development will incorporate a gym, conference facilities, restaurant, bar and coffee shop and will require the demolition of a vacant two storey office building built in 1987, Helix House.
Located adjacent to Miller’s Varcity development the scheme comprises a ground level plinth set back from the road housing public facilities with bedrooms stacked above in a four storey slab.
It will be clad in aluminium panels and blue engineering brick and sit within a 267 space surface car park – more than the stipulated maximum of 235 spaces for a development of this scale.
Work is expected to begin later this year for completion by mid-2014.
