Edinburgh Boutique Hotel Building
Boutique Hotel at the centre of Gladedale Capital’s development within the Edinburgh World Heritage Site. The 70 bed hotel with cafes, bars and spa is formed by linking 2 B-Listed medical pavilions designed by architect Sidney Mitchell in 1899 on the site of the former Edinburgh Royal Infirmary building.

The exterior of the buildings have been largely restored and linked by a 3 storey glass enclosed stairway which also forms the western end of a new central square at the heart of Foster & Partners masterplan.

International Council on Monuments & Sites (UNESCO advisers) reportedly extremely concerned about the impact of this proposal: so-called Twin Towers by architects Foster & Partners apparently may risk Edinburgh World Heritage status

Nov 2005 Update:
New Plans
Quartermile Edinburgh
perspective mid-2003 by Foster & Partners
Revised plans unveiled showing new square, more houses – from around 650 to approx. 1000 – and reduced hotel & office accommodation. New sketch images also released by Foster & Partners. The Surgical Hospital building will now be used for residential rather than a five-star hotel. Controversially Sydney Mitchell’s Red Home is set to be demolished which will surely reignite negative reaction.

Summer 2005 Update:
PagePark (Glasgow architects office)no longer involved. Richard Murphy Architects (Edinburgh architecture pracctice) doing more housing and CDA brought in. More details awaited.

The project is named due to the approximate diagonal distance across the site and due to being situated a quarter of a mile from both Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile; the site is approximately 20 acres in size.

The hospital relocates to a £184m building at Little France: New Royal Infirmary
