Edinburgh’s India Buildings

25 Jul


A look inside Edinburgh’s A-listed India Buildings. Summer 2016 presented an opportunity to performers from around the art spectrum to converge at the Buildings. Wave after Wave curated a collaborative mixed media show inside the Rotunda’s gallery.  In 2018, the C19th building and Central Library’s Cowgatehead gap site were both acquired by hoteliers. The council had already approved planning permission several years earlier in 2015. Due to open in 2020, Virgin Hotels Edinburgh will be completed in partnership with owner Flemyn and developer Jansons Property. The hotel will be managed by Virgin Hotels, and asset managed by Siggis Capital. Questions were raised re. daylight impact to the Central Library.
