Contractor appointed for speculative Edinburgh Exchange offices
June 21 201664,000sq/ft speculative office build in Edinburgh’s Exchange district to designs by Michael Laird Architects.
Construction at 2 Semple Street is now expected to get underway by 4 July to complete by January 2018, in tandem with a search to find tenants for the £12m block.
The project has entailed the demolition of a 1950’s extension to the art-deco Lothian House to make way for the new build.
GSS Developments director, Paul Stevenson, remarked: “The appointment of reputable contractors McLaughlin & Harvey signals our intent that this project will be delivered without delay. In initiating an early start date, potential tenants can plan ahead in confidence, thus removing some of the nervousness that can be involved in relocating offices.”
In addition to office space the project will accommodate two retail units fronting Lothian Road
