Approval expected for £200m Edinburgh scheme

Plans for a £200 million overhaul of the Haymarket in Edinburgh are expected to be given the green light by the council.

A meeting of Edinburgh City Council’s development management subcommittee will today (25 June), examine Tiger Developments plans to build two hotels and three office buildings on the site of a former goods yard at Morrison Street in the city.

The scheme, masterplanned by Richard Murphy Architects, has already been given a recommendation by the council’s planning department.

It will be anchored by a 16 storey 180 bedroom five star hotel.

The other three star hotel and offices will be between five and seven storeys tall.

If approved work is expected to start on site next year and will take four years to complete.
