132 Princes Street launches with castle views from every level
A four-storey building on one of Edinburgh’s most popular retail streets has been transformed into modern offices by owner Hazledene House Ltd.
132 Princes Street is now said to offer prospective tenants a ‘de-furbished’ office look, including exposed services, brick, concrete and steel, which bucks the trend of traditional office stock in the Capital following a substantial transformation of the Category B Listed building.
Spanning the three upper floors, the 11,147 sq ft development is located on one of Scotland’s most iconic shopping streets with views over Edinburgh Castle from every level.
Within reach is an abundance of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and retail/leisure amenities together with what has been described as “superb” transport infrastructure.
The refurbishment has seen the addition of a new feature stairwell and lift and glass box extension to the rear. The owners have also breathed new life into the building – stripping it back and reinventing it as modern offices. Considerable effort has been put into exposing and retaining some of the character of its former uses which includes HMV record shop, a theatre, cinema and tea room.
JLL Scotland, which is promoting the property, says it expects the space to generate a great deal of interest from prospective occupiers.
Geoff Scott, Associate Director at JLL, said: “Princes Street is synonymous with retail and leisure, but it also has much to offer as an office location. In line with Edinburgh’s emergence as one of the fastest growing tech hubs outside of London, 132 Princes Street offers a de-furbished finish to meet modern demand for engaging, thought provoking places to work. With office supply remaining tight and demand steady, 132 provide some much needed quality accommodation in the city centre that is unique in the market.
“There are nods to the building’s history throughout and with incredible views of the Castle and excellent transport links across the city including the Edinburgh Tram Network, we expect significant interest from a diverse range of potential occupiers.”
132 Princes Street is available to let floor by floor or in its entirety.
