Atria Edinburgh launched to the market at 144 and 142 Morrison Street

Atria Edinburgh, the City of Edinburgh Council’s landmark Grade A office development, was last night (25th April) unveiled to the market at an evening reception.

Attendees at the launch, which included professionals from across Scotland and representatives from the City of Edinburgh Council, were welcomed by chief executive Sue Bruce, and leading Scottish and UK businessman Lord Smith of Kelvin. 

The development is already 33% let with two leading financial services occupiers taking space in Atria One.  Investment Manager Brewin Dolphin will take 48,000 sq ft on levels 5 and 6, and earlier this week the Green Investment Bank confirmed that it would take 12,000 sq ft on level 7.

The development, which marks the completion of The Exchange business district in Edinburgh, is split between two buildings (Atria One and Two), comprising nearly 200,000 sq ft of accommodation.  Atria One provides 186,008 sq ft of highly efficient, flexible floorplates (up to 32,000 sq ft) over seven floors and the smaller Atria Two provides 12,922 sq ft split over two office levels.

Sue Bruce, chief executive of the City of Edinburgh Council said:  “Atria Edinburgh provides the city with a competitive advantage in attracting new, and retaining existing, businesses. This is reflected in the announcement of two new significant tenants prior to completion, which is a huge endorsement for the building and for the city.”

Earlier this year, a new public art wall featuring a quote from globally renowned Edinburgh-based author Alexander McCall Smith was unveiled at Atria One. The art wall, which was a key design feature of the development, celebrates the author and his acclaimed works that have helped profile the capital city around the globe.

The commercial office development has been undertaken alongside an expansion of the adjacent Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). Since the EICC opened in 1995 it has delivered an economic impact for Edinburgh of around £350 million.  To compete in a global conference market the EICC needed to expand to attract even greater numbers and host larger events, thereby realising an estimated £2.3 billion economic impact for Edinburgh and Scotland over a 30-year term.

Atria Edinburgh is being marketed for let by joint agents Jones Lang LaSalle and Montagu Evans.
