Duncan Tait at J. Smart & Co. (Contractors) PLC. Stated: “Following the successful lettings at Phases 1 & 2 we are pleased to be on-site with construction of much needed new industrial premises to respond to the lack of new industrial development coming forward in Edinburgh.“
Niall Burns Partner at Burns & Shaw added “The fact that we had 75% of Phase 2 under offer prior to practical completion highlights the continuing demand from occupiers for modern well- located units in and around Edinburgh”.
Bryce Stewart, Partner at Montagu Evans, said “Given the political uncertainty just now it goes to show that businesses are still in the market for high quality industrial accommodation and West Edinburgh Business Park offers just that!”
