20,000 sq ft scheme
‘Characterful’ office plan for Edinburgh Old Town
Office plan: Canongate development
An office development is being proposed in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town.
Plans to build 20,000 sq ft of workspace over four floors off the Royal Mile have been submitted to city planners.
Property developer, Summix Capital has identified a site at 179 Canongate, to introduce what it describes as “a characterful office development”.
The design has been developed as a response to the “unique fabric and distinct historical identity of Canongate and the Royal Mile”.
Each floor will have 5,000 sq ft with accessible break out spaces on the top two floors.
There would space for cycles and the potential for a publicly accessible café via Old Tolbooth Wynd.
