Hotel Opportunity: Ocean Point Hotel

Ocean Point is located in the heart of the Leith docks area in Edinburgh. It offers hotel developers and operators an exciting opportunity to be part of this new waterfront destination, close to Edinburgh City Centre.

FOR SALE - An exciting new hotel development opportunity located in Leith, Edinburgh.

Ocean Point is situated in a prominent waterfront location to the north-east of Edinburgh City Centre and is host to a wide range of established corporate and leisure occupiers. There is very limited hotel supply in the area with no committed schemes in the development pipeline. Being adjacent to the Ocean Point office development and within easy reach of Edinburgh City Centre, the location offers an exciting opportunity for a new hotel development.
