Edinburgh’s New Waverley development, the £150 million regeneration scheme currently transforming the heart of the city’s Old Town, has won one of the Scottish property industry’s most prestigious accolades.
New Waverley collected the award for the best city regeneration project in Scotland at the Scottish Property Awards, held in Edinburgh on 2nd March. Following a record high number of entries in the competition, 710 guests gathered for the annual event to celebrate the best of Scotland’s commercial property sector.
The award recognises New Waverley’s 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.
Judges commended New Waverley as “brave and ambitious vision which is now becoming a reality” and “a significant positive impact on the area around it.”
Clive Wilding, Director noted “We are all absolutely thrilled to have been recognised by the Scottish Property Awards as Scotland’s best regeneration project, in what was a fiercely contested category.”
“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. I am delighted that New Waverley’s considerable impact is now being recognised on a national stage by our peers and public alike.”
Congratulations to the Artisan Team!
