New Waverley, our £150 million regeneration scheme currently transforming the heart of the Edinburgh’s Old Town, has been nominated for a top national property award.
New Waverley was one of only a handful of UK-wide developments to make the shortlist for the fiercely-contested ‘Placemaking’ category of the 2017 Property Week Awards. The event will be held in London on 4th April 2017.
The Placemaking award rewards “commercial and mixed use developments that have regenerated and physically improved the built environment around a particular site”.
The award nomination recognises its current status as one of the UK’s most important city-centre regeneration sites, taking place in the historic and highly sensitive World Heritage Site of Edinburgh’s Old Town.
Clive Wilding, Artisan’s Project Director said: “We are looking forward to the awards and are all delighted that New Waverley has made this prestigious national shortlist – especially as ‘placemaking’ is what our development is all about. “For the last two years, we have worked hard to make New Waverley be an integral part of Edinburgh’s Old Town, breathing new life back to a formerly neglected part of the city centre. This award nomination shows that our efforts are now paying off and I am delighted that New Waverley’s considerable impact is being recognised on a national stage by our peers and public alike.”
