Apartments plug last Royal Mile gap site
September 12 2018
Unicorn Properties have completed an unusual development of 13 apartments at 123 High Street on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile by carefully constructing a four storey new build addition atop the remains of three listed stone buildings, including the B-listed Mitre Bar.
Sitting on top of a concrete deck the timber extension presented a number of particular challenges, not least the complexity of the plumbing to avoid weakening joists unnecessarily and resulting in the use of pipework specified by Rehau.
Designed by JM Architects the £3.2m infill build sits on the northern side of the High Street within the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, employing a sympathetic sandstone façade to satisfy these demands.
Belying its historic appearance all homes will benefit from oak flooring and the latest appliances.
A formal opening for the project is anticipated by autumn 2018.
