Extending the Mile

  • Comment

To Edinburgh to witness the new William Younger Centre by Michael Hopkins and Partners (opened by the Queen, Donald Dewar and Chris Smith), and to experience a welter of construction activity going on in the city. Lothian and Edinburgh Enterprise Limited, my host, says that now its £150 million plan to revitalise the Old Town is under way prices are going through the roof on what was formerly the poor relation to the higher end of the Royal Mile. And since leel 'won the coconut' of the Parliament building on its doorstep, the prices have gone up even more. Hugh Pearman in the Sunday Times notes that despite Glasgow's valiant architectural efforts this year, Edinburgh is again stealing the limelight. There is plenty more to come, for example Bennetts Associates' new hq for British Telecom in the city.
