132 Princes Street launches with spectacular castle views

EDINBURGH, October 4, 2017 – A four storey building on Edinburgh's most popular retail street has been transformed into modern cutting edge offices with exposed finishes and services that will appeal to a wide variety of occupiers. offers prospective tenants a 'de-furbished' office look including exposed services, brick, concrete and steel offering a breath of fresh air from traditional office stock in the capital.

Spanning over the three upper floors, the 11,147 sq ft development is located on one of Scotland's most iconic shopping streets with spectacular views over Edinburgh Castle from every level. The location offers occupiers an abundance of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and retail / leisure amenity together with superb transport infrastructure on its doorstep.

Owners Hazledene House Ltd have undertaken a substantial transformation of the Category B Listed building which has seen the addition of new feature stairwell, lift and glass box extension to the rear. They have 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. This provides a unique character and appeal to the property.

JLL Scotland who are promoting the property expect 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."
