Exchange Place Building information from cre8architecture 2007

Work has started on cre8architecture’s £50m Exchange Place office development in Edinburgh. The new 280,000sqft proposals for Scottish Widows Investment Partnership are one of the final components of the original Central Business District. Secured in design competition the development marks the first major commission for the new Edinburgh based practice.

The development of three 5 and 6 storey office buildings around a new public piazza links to the Millennium Way between Edinburgh Quay and the city centre. The proposals also see the retention and relocation of the Grade B listed entrance arches to the former Meat Market.

The project is being delivered as part of a joint venture with London-based practice RHWL, with a completion date for all three offices of Spring 2009.
