It forms part of Edinburgh Park, home to 7,000 employees and blue chip occupiers such as Fujitsu, HSBC, J.P. Morgan, and the Lloyds Banking Group.

The building will provide quality workspace for our expanding team and clients. The standout design and sustainability credentials are a perfect fit and will enable us to have a greater focus on employee health and well-being, with natural light and plentiful outdoor space, as well as being in close proximity to a range of public transport options and park amenities."
