Proposals - 2005
between Edinburgh Council and developers, with a view to turning the
building into artists' studios and flats have been ongoing for the
past ten years. The Council has set a three-month deadline,
from May 2005, for conclusion of these negotiations.
If this deadline is not
met, the Council propose to put the building on the market again.
