The Deal

A classic example of Jansons site assembly. The India Buildings comprised a receivership sale of a prominent rare building in the old town of Edinburgh.

It unlocked the development of a gap site to the rear backing on to Cowgate. The amalgamation of both resulted in a major five-star hotel consent.

The Development

Jansons secured planning consent for the development of a new luxury hotel on the site of the former India Buildings in the old town of Edinburgh, part of the UNESCO World Heritage site.

When complete, the development will provide 225 guest rooms, bars, restaurants and function space.

The hotel is due to open in Summer 2021 and will be Virgin’s first hotel outside the US.
