EDINBURGH, 26 July 2016 - The EDI Group, the Edinburgh focused property development and investment firm, has relocated to new office space in the capital's historic Old Town.

The firm has leased 3,545 sq ft of newly refurbished office space within 3 Cockburn Street on a five year agreement and were represented by JLL. The building has been significantly refurbished and offers a combination of high quality open plan and cellular accommodation.

EDI, the property development subsidiary of Edinburgh Council, invests in non-active Council land and buildings with the mission of creating inspirational places for workers, residents and visitors. 

The company has been based in North St David Street for the last two years having moved out of its old headquarters in a former merchants' hall in Hunter Square which it restored from a shell. Knight Frank represented owners The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, who also occupy space within the building.

Eric Adair, Operations and Finance Director, at EDI said: "We're delighted to be relocating to an iconic location in the heart of the capital. The space, superbly refurbished by the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, will provide us with a modern and dynamic working environment.  It's based in the Old Town but looks out on to the New Town and so reminds us every day of what gives Edinburgh a world status as an aspirational place to live, work and visit."

Bruce Robertson at JLL in Edinburgh, commented: "3 Cockburn Street, located in the heart of Edinburgh, is an ideal location for The EDI Group to be positioned and meets their requirements for a larger, higher quality space. With its close proximity to the City of Edinburgh Council's Headquarters and Waverley Station, the building offers The EDI Group an excellent hub from which to continue growing its operation in Edinburgh."
