Georgian living returns to Edinburgh’s main shopping thoroughfare

13th December 2017 in Latest Projects
Sharkey recently restored a B listed Georgian 'classical tenement' on Edinburgh's renowned shopping street to its original format.

The corner site at 97-98 Princes Street/1-3 Frederick Street, one of the few Georgian buildings remaining on Princes Street, is late 18th century and the project, which provides retail space at street level, restores its original usage with residential accommodation re-established on the upper floors.

Phase 1 created 10,000 sq ft of retail space while Phase 2 comprised 6 1-bedroom apartments over 3 floors and 9,500 sq ft delivered for holiday let in the heart of Scotland’s capital.  Major structural alterations were required to bring the building up to current standards and Sharkey worked closely with Historic Scotland to ensure that key original features were sympathetically restored, not least the 12-pane sash and case windows which perfectly frame the stunning views of Edinburgh Castle.
