McAleer & Rushe was proud to join with developer Artisan Real Estate Investors at the “Topping Out” of a 146-suite Adagio Aparthotel being built by M&R in the heart of Edinbugh’s Old Town.

The four-storey Adagio fronts on to the Royal Mile and a new £6.5m public square which is at the heart of Artisan’s £150m development called New Waverley which is creating a brand new city centre district for Edinburgh.

The scheme also includes a 127-room Premier Inn and 130-room Hub by Premier Inn which both recently opened, also built by McAleer & Rushe. Other elements include 177,000 sq ft of cutting edge Grade A offices and 148 apartments and townhouses.

McAleer & Rushe Contracts Director Shane McCullagh said:

We are very pleased to mark this construction milestone with Artisan. The hotel blends in with its historic environment behind an existing façade on to the Royal Mile and a newly created pedestrian walkway linking Cannongate to the square is inspired by the Old Town’s historic ‘Wynds’. It has been great working with such a competent developer and we look forward to working with Artisan on other elements of this fantastic scheme.
