The Registers, Edinburgh

Chris Stewart Group acquired the former Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters in Edinburgh’s iconic and prestigious St Andrew Square in summer 2014.

42 St Andrew Square is an impressive neoclassical bank building completed in 1942, with a top lit entrance atrium and double height banking hall and reflects the art deco era of 1930s America. This building, once complete, will be known as The Edinburgh Grand and will be home to 50 beautifully appointed luxury apartments in a five star hotel setting. The Edinburgh Grand will be run by the award-winning team behind Old Town Chambers, located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town.

The Mint Building – fronting West Register Street and South St Andrew Street – includes the preservation of a remarkable Venetian Gothic facade dating from the 1860s as well as the construction of a striking new building, which will provide up to 65,000 sqft of Grade A office accommodation in the heart of the city centre.
