Contract won from NHS
Ryden to market historic hospital
Ryden has won the contract to market the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh.
The site will soon become surplus to requirement as clinical services relocate to a new £150m facility at Little France.
The four acre site includes the B listed George Washington Browne designed hospital building on Sciennes Road; 23 terraced villas and several flats located along Rillbank Terrace, Rillbank Crescent and Millerfield Place; together with land with potential for a new build development.
Ryden won the marketing contract from NHS Lothian and The Edinburgh and Lothian Health Foundation.
David Fraser, residential land and development partner at Ryden, said: “The Royal Hospital for Sick Children is one of Edinburgh’s most iconic properties.
“We expect it to attract considerable interest from local, national and international developers as market demand for development opportunities within Edinburgh City Centre is currently strong.”
The hospital opened in 1860 at 7 Lauriston Lane and relocated to Sciennes Road in 1895.
