Building finally set to start on £200m Edinburgh hotel project

A new £200m hotel next to Edinburgh's Haymarket station is set to be built after years of delay.

The site has lain dormant for four years as a result of planning disputes and the economic downturn, according to the BBC.

There were originally plans for a 17-storey building on the site but the project has been scaled down as a result of planning objections. However the site new has full planning permission.

Construction is set to start this summer, although an operator has not yet been named for the hotel. Restaurant chains Prezzo and Pret A Manger have committed to the second phase of development of the project, which will ultimately include office, hotel and retail space, as well as serviced apartments.
