Moorgarth has submitted its latest development proposals for Edinburgh’s Waverley Mall
Since acquiring the mall in March 2017, Moorgarth has undertaken a comprehensive review of the shopping destination to understand how it contributes to Edinburgh’s retail and leisure scene. This has led to the development of plans which significantly enhances and improves the way the mall integrates into its surrounding area.
Along with a newly designed roof space, a new entrance at the corner of Princes Street and Waverley Bridge will be created enabling full disabled access, much improved circulation at the top of Waverley Steps and a doubling of the width of the pavement travelling west towards the Scott Monument.
In March 2018, Moorgarth was granted planning permission to widen the entrances onto Waverley Steps in an effort to enhance the visitor experience to the centre and the general aspect up the steps themselves.In addition, Waverley Mall will soon undergo a programme of internal works, aimed at reviving the look and feel of the mall.
Moorgarth CEO Tim Vaughan said: “These proposals are all about maximising the potential of this unique site, for the benefit of both Edinburgh’s residents and visitors. Along with the improved roof space, the new entrance and the widening of the pavement on Princes Street are all about establishing a greater sense of arrival into Edinburgh that utilises its unique and very important location.”
