Double letting in Old Town
EDI and SPF take space in Tattoo offices
It is the second letting in the building in Cockburn Street announced in the last few days following the relocation of the Scottish Property Federation.
EDI, the property development subsidiary of Edinburgh Council, invests in non-active Council land and buildings with the mission of creating inspirational places for workers, residents and visitors.
It has leased 3,545 sq ft of the former council planning offices at the foot of Cockburn St on a five year agreement.
The company has been based in North St David Street for the last two years having moved out of its old headquarters in a former merchants’ hall in Hunter Square which it restored from a shell. Knight Frank represented owners The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo while JLL represented EDI.
Ryden has secured space in Cockburn St for property industry body, Scottish Property Federation (SPF).
The property consultancy negotiated a lease for the entire 1,248 sq ft 4th floor and will relocate from Rutland Square.
David Melhuish (pictured above), director at SPF, said: “The new SPF premises offer improved facilities for our many members who visit our office frequently to engage in our activities on behalf of the sector.
“Being located within a couple of minutes’ walk of Waverley is also much appreciated by members from outside the Edinburgh region.”
