Edinburgh council’s development company, EDI Group, has won planning permission for a mixed-use scheme containing offices, leisure and retail elements, all linked by a five-storey public arcade and square.

The scheme, for a derelict goods yard next to Haymarket Station to the west of the city centre, is being designed by award-winning local architect Reiach and Hall. The project team includes project manager Summerfield Robb Clark, structural and services engineer Cundall Johnston and Partners and cost consultant Gleeds.

Two further phases are to be designed by Page and Park and Alan Murray Architects.
