Update from UoE's Estates Department on the former Surgical Hospital:

Quote:
W/C 9th May 2016: Commencement of an early minor strip out enabling package comprising removal of modern inlay ceilings, limited areas of wall linings and loose furniture items/debris at the UoE Quartermile building. This is to facilitate an accurate measured building survey to provide floor plan drawings of all levels and 3D Mass and Building Information Models. This early strip will also provide information regarding the structure and stonework condition which is important for the early design and cost work.

Dalton Demolitions has been appointed to undertake these works and is due to be on site from 9th May until late June.

Seeing this, bit of a shame that the Sydney Mitchell pavillion didn't become a boutique hotel. Well suited. And surprising that only an apart-hotel in the whole development given all the hotels appearing in other mixed use developments and elsewhere. By no means perfect if being perfectionistic - but all in all shaping up as a very decent benchmark development, especially with EU plans for the flagship building.

Agreed. It would be perfect as a trendy boutique hotel type thing. But overall this development is outstanding and something we can all be proud of.

I'd like to see more trees though, that 4th pic down with the view of a cafe area. Some trees in the middle of that path would be perfect.

PAN submitted for the final new-build residential development. This will fill the space to the rear of the former Surgical Hospital (now being redeveloped by Bennetts Associates for the University of Edinburgh). From the description there'll be two blocks (Q26 & Q27) with a combined total of 91 flats above ground floor retail.

Under the original masterplan, this site would have seen an extension to the Surgical Hospital building and was to have been designed by Richard Murphy Architects (first for hotel and later residential use) and then by CDA, just prior to the sale of the original building to the University. The good news for the homogeneity of the wider site is that it looks like Foster + Partners will now be project architects. Finishing what they started I guess.

16/04412/PAN | Proposed residential development (91 units) and ancillary works together with commercial use at ground floor level at Q26 and Q27. | Land 100 Metres South Of 1 Lauriston Place Edinburgh
