Developers apply to build new hotel in Edinburgh city center

A vacant lot in Edinburgh's city center may soon get a new hotel after a joint venture between Peveril Securities—the development arm of the Bowmer and Kirkland Group—and Campus Development Management lodged a planning application for the proposed redevelopment of the buildings on King's Stables Road that, in addition to a hotel, would include apartments, a public square and a cafe .

The buildings on the site used to house council offices, storage premises and workshops. The space has been unused since 2009, and the buildings were put on the market last year by the council.

Charles Vyvyan from Campus Development Management told the BBC that the company is "highly sensitive" to the fact that the site is within the UNESCO World Heritage site boundary, and that the community will be able to comment on the development.
