Construction begins on £21m Edinburgh office block
February 1 2017
The Mint Building, designed by Hoskins Architects, will offer 61,000sq/ft of grade A office accommodation with 11,000sq/ft of retail and restaurant space occupying the ground floor.
This will necessitate clearance of a series of existing buildings on the site and refurbishment of a Venetian Gothic warehouse and will be delivered in tandem with an adjacent property, The Edinburgh Grand, which is being converted with the help of Morgan McDonnell into 50 serviced apartments and a bar.
Chris Stewart, chief executive of Chris Stewart Group, said: “The project will create state-of-the-art offices and retail / restaurant space to sit alongside renovated traditional Edinburgh architecture and bring to an end a lengthy period where the site has been vacant and in a state of disrepair. Once the project is complete Edinburgh can look forward to a regenerated and strategically important city centre destination.”
Together the development is known as The Registers and forms part of the £850m St James Quarter regeneration drive.
