Investment Opportunities at Waverley Square, Edinburgh

Waverley Square is the residential element of the New Waverley project in Edinburgh, bringing to life a prime district of the city that has been underutilised over the years. The apartments at New Waverley offer a fantastic investment opportunity for UK based and international investors.

New Waverley

The mixed-use development breathes life into a crucial part of Edinburgh’s city centre. Edinburgh council relocated their HQ to Waverley Court, East Market Street in 2007 and since then the area has been undergoing regeneration. The UK Government has now moved into 200,000 of office space within the New Waverley development where just under 30,000 employees will be based as part of the Government’s flagship hub in Scotland. Many popular cafes, restaurants and shops have also already opened up within New Waverley and surrounding streets with more to come as more residents move into the completed apartments.

Initially master planned by Artisan, there will be 244 residential apartments across 3 separate blocks, finished to a high specification by Queensberry and all enjoying fantastic levels of light and with some unbeatable views of the Edinburgh skyline.

Our experience at Waverley Square

In September 2021 we let a 1 bedroom property at Shoemaker’s Square, Waverly Square on behalf of an overseas landlord. We took an active role in the snagging inspection and follow up and we organised for the apartment to be furnished to a high specification via a trusted 3rd-party furnishing specialist before securing a tenant off-market before we even got a chance to advertise it! From the initial key handover from the developer through to a tenant moving in it took only 4 weeks. You can view our 3D tour for this property here.
