For the first time, last week Andy and Michael were able to walk on every floor of Jansons’ Soco development in the heart of Edinburgh. It was great to see first hand the progress that’s been made and to appreciate fully the actual size and scope of the development.

I’m going to let the pictures do the talking…..
