Edinburgh’s BioQuarter brings together thousands of inspiring people, pioneering organisations and research institutes. Home to the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, University of Edinburgh teaching facilities and global life science companies, the next phase of development will deliver a new children’s hospital, the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Tissue Repair and multi-occupancy accommodation. Once complete, Edinburgh BioQuarter will offer more than 3m sq ft of academic, healthcare and commercial activity.
Edinburgh BioQuarter is situated on the principal A7 arterial route which links the city centre to the A720 city bypass. The BioQuarter campus is very well served by public transport, with numerous bus routes from locations across the city. A “Park & Ride” facility with 900 car spaces is located on the City Bypass within two miles, with bus services running past the BioQuarter every ten minutes. Waverley Station, Edinburgh’s main rail hub, is three miles to the south of the campus at the heart of the city centre, and Edinburgh Airport is situated 11 miles to the west.
Edinburgh is connected across the UK and internationally, with principal international destinations accessible either via direct flights or through London’s five airports, all approximately one hour’s flying time from Edinburgh.
Complementing this scheme is the requirement for an internationally-branded hotel of circa 120 bedrooms, to occupy the prominent southern corner plot adjacent to the A7. Essential to meet the strong level of existing demand for hotel accommodation and other facilities from the increasing number of on-site users.
Requirement for a ‘midscale’ bedroom product with select service, and ancillary facilities including a restaurant and a large meeting room which can be subdivided into three boardrooms. Seeking expressions of interest to acquire and develop the hotel on a freehold or long leasehold basis.
