Duddingston House Properties has been granted planning consent for an office redevelopment in Edinburgh city centre.

The Edinburgh-based developer can now develop a former Job Centre at 24-26 Torphichen Street into 40,000 sq ft of offices.

Edinburgh’s finance home

The 1960’s building lies between the popular financial hub of the Exchange District and Haymarket station.

The redevelopment will be named ‘Haymarket Green’, a BREEAM Excellent rated scheme designed by architects Bennetts Associates.

Green credentials

Jones Lang LaSalle and GVA Grimley have been appointed joint letting agents on the scheme.
