A 23-acre site adjacent to Edinburgh International Airport has been put up for sale in west Edinburgh.
Billed as a mixed-use development, Edinburgh International Business Gateway (EIBG) can deliver nearly 385,000 ft² of office space, 525 hotel rooms and 200 residential units.
JLL and Savills were appointed by owners Murray Estates to sell EIBG.
Cameron Stott, director at JLL in Edinburgh, commented:
“Given the paucity of high profile mixed use sites for development in Edinburgh, this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a strategically positioned, high profile site adjacent to the burgeoning Edinburgh International Airport.
“Located on a gateway site to both Edinburgh and the rest of the central belt, Edinburgh International Business Gateway will also provide additional hotel rooms to meet the capital’s increasing tourism demand and provide additional residential space.”
The site, which is seeking to obtain planning permission in principle in the autumn, is easily accessible from the A8. EIBG is one stop from Edinburgh Gateway railway station (due to open later this year) and a stop from Edinburgh International Airport.
Supported by the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and the City of Edinburgh Council, EIBG has the potential to benefit from Edinburgh’s City Deal announced at the latest Westminster budget. EIBG is part of Edinburgh’s wider strategic expansion to the west.
