Tiger Developments is a wholly owned subsidiary
of the O’Flynn Group, released plans
in September 2007 for their proposed £200m development for the Morrison
Street Car Park at Haymarket. The developers propose:
- a 5-star, 16-storey, 180-bedroom
leaf-shaped InterContinental Hotel .
- a 3-star, 246-bedroom ,Travelodge Hotel.
- three office buildings providing a total
335,000 sq ft on the edge of Edinburgh's financial district.
- a boulevard through the centre of the
site, extending from Morrison Street to Dalry Road
The proposed glass and stone fronted
InterContinental Hotel would be the largest building in the area, about
the same height as the Balmoral Hotel at the East End of Princes Street.
Here are three views of the proposed development.
The first of these is the picture at the top of this page:
The developers hope that planning permission will
be granted in time to allow building work to begin in mid-2008 and be
completed by 2012.
