Pre-Christmas launch for New Waverley square and aparthotel
November 24 2016New Waverley development.
Opening on 19 December the development will connect the Royal Mile to the Canongate district by way of a football-pitch sized public space, which will be used to host markets and arts events. This new square will connect to the Royal Mile by way of a covered walkway based on the city’s historic ‘Wynds’ and will be joined by an aparthotel behind the historic façade of two 1930’s tenement buildings overlooking the Royal Mile, one of which is C-listed.
Jose Gómez, general manager of Aparthotels Adagio commented: “With a superb position overlooking both the Royal Mile and the new public square, the aparthotel will be a major visitor draw which will reignite interest in this historic part of the Old Town. We are working with New Waverley to ensure our aparthotel reflects the area’s unique link with the history and culture of the Old Town, providing our guests with an exceptional base from which to enjoy this fantastic city and surrounding area.”
A further phase of work will deliver 148 new homes and 180,000sq/ft of grade A office space in 2017.
