February 29 2016£150m New Waverley development in Edinburgh’s Old Town.
The Premier Inn and Hub by Premier Inn destinations will deliver 248 rooms between them as part of a wider leisure and retail quarter being delivered by Artisan Real Estate.
This includes a 146 apartment Adagio Aparthotel fronting the Royal Mile behind the C-listed façade of the Sailors Ark building which is scheduled to open in November alongside a £2m square.
Work will get underway on a second phase of work including two office blocks equating to 160,000sq/ft of space, 148 flats and associated shops, restaurants and cafes later this year as part of an Allan Murray Architects master plan.
Clive Wilding, project director for New Waverley commented: “We are now creating a vibrant destination which is bringing what was a neglected post-industrial site right back into the heart of the Old Town and the city centre.”
The new hotels follow on from the refurbishment of the Waverley Arches.
