Contractors commence above ground Haymarket works
May 4 2016£200m office-led commercial scheme on a derelict site in Edinburgh’s west end with the removal of tunnel earthworks dating back to the 1840’s.
The Haymarket will comprise a mixture of office, retail and leisure space including a hotel and apart-hotel when it completes, with the first office building set to complete in 2018.
Located next door to a main line railway station and tram link the scheme is being marketed as Edinburgh’s best-connected address.
Cllr Gavin Barrie, convenor of the economy committee, said: “It is very welcome news that this key ‘Edinburgh 12’ site has reached such a significant milestone. With its prime location next to Haymarket station and tram stop, The Haymarket will bring thousands of jobs to the city during construction and once complete.”
Graham Haydon-White, development director at Tiger Developments, added: “With the stage one build contract now in place, we are uniquely placed ahead of any other major mixed-use development in the capital.”
The Haymarket has been designed by Richard Murphy and CDA Architects.
