Contender: Fraser will become a Johnnie Walker tourist centre
One of Scotland’s biggest tourism ventures in recent years, a build to rent development and a new technology headquarters are among the finalists revealed in the Scottish Property Awards.
The sale of the former Frasers department store in Edinburgh to Diageo will create a Johnnie Walker Experience which Diageo hopes to open before Christmas.
Legal & General is investing in a build to rent development at Buchanan Wharf, Glasgow, while US investment bank JP Morgan is creating a new European technology base in Argyle Street.
The Scottish Property Awards take place on 20 February at the Edinburgh International Conference centre.
