Construction commences at £20m Edinburgh hotel
April 25 2016£20m hotel on Edinburgh’s Market Street; transforming Craig’s Close, which has remained unused for 50 years, in the process.
Designed by JM Architects the 98 bedroom establishment will revitalise a derelict site within the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, infilling the last remaining gap site on its northern boundary.
The new hotel is scheduled to open its doors in spring 2018 and will boast a penthouse lounge area offering expansive views across the city skyline.
Councillor Gavin Barrie, chair at The EDI Group Ltd, said: “The design of the building carefully balances old and new to support the city’s heritage status and we’re delighted that a key under-used site for the city will be brought back into use for residents and visitors to enjoy”.
Interior design work is to be undertaken by FG Stijl with ISG serving as main contractor.
