Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh

 

A complex, high quality city centre hotel, retail and leisure development on one of the most sensitive sites in Edinburgh’s World Heritage area.

The project involved substantial demolition of a 1960’s municipal office building, retention and renovation of important Grade A listed buildings and development of a new 136 bedroom hotel, headquarters bank, restaurants and retail units extending to 120,000 sq ft.  The hotel was pre-let to Rezidor for their new flagship Hotel Missoni concept.  Planning permission was secured in less than 7 months and the development was completed to a turn-key standard and subsequently sold to Scottish Widows Investment Partnership Property Trust for whom Corran Properties subsequently acted in respect of pre-acquisition due diligence.
