King’s Stables Road
The proposed mixed-use development in the Grassmarket will create a landmark development that breathes new life into a neglected part of the city. Following the successful bid put forward as a joint venture between Campus DM and Peveril Securities, the scheme includes a mix of residential units, a hotel, an arts facility; student accommodation and a variety of commercial units activating the ground floor of the development. The proposals also include improved public realm integrating the existing courtyard with new routes and courtyards throughout the development, including the enhancement to the setting of King’s Bridge.
The site is one of the City’s 12 priority development sites and is highly visible from around the city. A key driver for the development has been the potential for the commercial buildings that sit around King’s Stables Courtyard to function as a coherent arts-led hub that becomes a destination in its own right, keys into existing city arts festivals, directly benefits the neighbouring business community in Grassmarket, and compliments the Council’s wider aspirations for a new cultural quarter for the area.
