CDA & Hoskins Architects
3-8 St Andrew Square
Located within the World Heritage Site of Edinburgh’s New Town, this project involves the redevelopment of seven existing buildings on the south side of St Andrew Square that formed the original headquarters of the Scottish Provident insurance firm. CDA and Hoskins Architects have worked in collaboration to deliver this significant development on what is one of the city’s most sensitive prime sites.
The project is seen as a major element within the regeneration of the eastern end of the New Town, providing mixed use of 100,000 sq ft Grade A office space, 70,000 sq ft prime retail, and a suite of luxury apartments. Involving close liaison with statutory bodies to agree the conversion and reuse of the Category A listed Burnett building and the selective demolition of a number of other listed buildings, the scheme received planning and listed building consent in 2007, and was completed in 2017.
