Scottish Provident demolition labelled a ‘tragedy’
July 4 2014
Malcolm Fraser, who took this picture, described the demolition as a ‘tragedy’ for the city, addong: "One of Edinburgh’s finest modern buildings destroyed – though the Gareth Hoskins/CDA proposals will glue a bit of the façade back on."
Edinburgh councilors gave the nod to the demolition following assurances that elements of the dismantled façade would be re-used in the new scheme, after ruling that dismantling and reconstructing the façade did not constitute demolition.
Designed by Rowand Anderson Kinimouth & Paul the New Town landmark is being redeveloped by Standard Life and is expected to be complete by the end of 2016.
