Allan Murray Architects has been given the go-ahead by planners for a £100 million scheme with 20,000m2 leisure and 15,000m2 of offices in a World Heritage Site in East Edinburgh's Greenside Place. The project will have a civic square, 12-screen cinema, 50-bed hotel and eight-storey office and roof garden with views of Carlton Hill. Diggers are due to start on the site, known as 'the hole in the ground', in May 2000 and finish in 2001 (for other projects in Edinburgh, see page 14).
