Quartermile, Edinburgh

Quartermile is the award-winning mixed-use redevelopment of the 19-acre site of the former Royal Infirmary in the centre of Edinburgh. Q-Park has acquired the rights to develop and provide underground parking facilities for this prestigious project.

The scheme comprises a mixture of new build apartments, apartments converted from the existing hospital buildings, new build offices, affordable housing, and retail/leisure uses.

The site is adjacent to Edinburgh University and plans are already in place to expand the site even further with the University constructing an interdisciplinary hub including a business school, lecture theatres and a 500-seat amphitheatre within the scheme.

Once complete, Quartermile will contain over 1,000 apartments, 30,000 square metres of grade A office accommodation, 10,000 m2 of retail and leisure space and seven acres of open landscaping.

Q-Park has grasped this opportunity to gain a long-term position in Edinburgh and Quartermile forms part of Q-Park’s strategic objective to grow the business in key cities.
