TYPE OF PROPERTY:
|Development, Student Housing|
Well located student development opportunity in central Edinburgh. Has potential for alternative uses.
Area: 0.43 Ha (1.08 acres)
Planning consent (2008) for 260 bed student residence plus 1,747 sq.m (18,804 sq.ft) retail. Ref: 06/ 05371/FUL
Planning consent (2011) for 239 hotel beds and 1,586 sq.m (17,000 sq.ft) retail. Ref: 09/01872/FUL
Both consents are Minded to Grant and subject to Section 75 agreement.
Revised scheme (subject to planning) for 311 beds above 2,322 sq.m (25,000 sq.ft) retail unit over 5 storeys within the consented height and massing.
The consented retail unit has attracted strong interest from national food retailers on account of its size, key location and strong frontage onto Leith Walk, a primary arterial route; in addition there is scope to increase the retail area, subject to planning.
The site is currently occupied by the de-rated former CEC Social Work Department offices and is adjacent to a larger regeneration site, Shrub Place, which has potential for mixed use development. In addition Leith Walk and the wider area has benefitted in recent years from significant regeneration efforts and local campaigns to promote the area and capitalise on its status as a major arterial route connecting the city centre to Leith and the north of Edinburgh.
A full planning history is contained on the dedicated website: http://www.shrubhillmurano.com
This site is available on an individual basis or together with 4-6 Murano Place http://www.rettie.co.uk/development/murano
