Construction begins at “extraordinary” Waverley Square development

WORK is underway at Waverley Square, the first residential development within the 7.5 acre mixed-use New Waverley project in the heart of Edinburgh’s old town.

Property developer Queensberry Properties said the first homes are anticipated to be complete by the autumn of 2020. Waverley Square includes 66 new homes for private sale in a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, mews houses and maisonettes, designed in a quadrangular formation around a central courtyard.

Architectural practice Allan Murray Associates is said to have incorporated ‘high quality’ materials to the elevational treatments, including natural sandstone, timber and metal cladding, brick, render and glass.

Hazel Davies, sales and marketing director of Queensberry Properties said, “We are delighted to be underway at this extraordinary development. There are so many superlatives that apply to Waverley Square, however, its unique location is worthy of particular mention. Positioned right in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, it gives residents immediate access to an incredible range of things to see and do, most of which are right on their doorstep, including the best of Edinburgh’s famous history and culture.”
