“Following a number of significant sub-lettings to The University of Edinburgh, CodeBase, Codeplay, Codeclan, Delta-EE and Venture Trust, there is now only 45,000 sq ft available within this iconic, city-centre office building.”

“With highly efficient floor plates, competitive rent levels and an all-inclusive service charge to include heating”, the property “provides occupiers with a range of size options within a safe, secure, budget-friendly and dynamic environment.”

The building “is the bridge between new and old. The building forms the eastern edge of Edinburgh’s Financial Exchange District, which is the hub of the city’s business services sector. The office also borders Edinburgh’s Old Town with its vibrant retail and leisure focus, centred on the Royal Mile and the Grassmarket.”
