Our Soco development is coming along nicely, we’re level with Southbridge and rising. In keeping with the keen local interest, there has been another article published about the site, this time in Invest Edinburgh, which brings together all the latest business news in the area.

Edinburgh is looking forward to the completion of the project, which will revive an area which has been languishing since the massive fire ten years ago (see previous posts).

The change since the site was cleared is startling and it is now possible to get a good idea of how the finished site will actually look. This was how the cleared site looked:

And now, from Cowgate looking towards Southbridge:
