Plans submitted for the rejuvenation of former NTS HQ on Charlotte Square

The Charlotte Square Collection has today submitted a detailed planning application to the City of Edinburgh Council for the restoration, renovation and development of the properties it owns at 26-31 Charlotte Square. 

Prepared by Morgan McDonnell Architecture, the planning application represents a significant first step towards a vision of restoring the fortunes of Charlotte Square and returning it to its former pre-eminent position as the best business address in Edinburgh. 

Nick Ball, Director of Corran Properties, the Asset and Development Managers for The Collection said: “The quality of work proposed will restore, preserve and enhance these unique and important buildings to a level more reflective of the city centre’s status as a World Heritage Site. Extensive pre-application consultation has taken place with key stakeholders, conservation and heritage bodies as well as the City of Edinburgh Council.  This application also raises for discussion the idea of substantially improving the public realm of Charlotte Square to a standard more befitting of its status as Europe’s finest Georgian Square.”
