New home for Duke of Edinburgh


THE Duke of Edinburgh’s Award charity has moved into new premises at Rosebery House, Haymarket.

The charity has signed a ten year lease to take 1,737 sq ft of fully refurbished open plan office space in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End at a rate of £15 per sq ft.

The charity is the fourth occupier to have moved into Rosebery House in the last 18 months.

Other occupiers at the property include Sustrans Scotland, Atmos Consulting, Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland, Young Scot, Youthlink Scotland and Network Rail.

Barry Fisher, Director, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award said: “The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award are delighted to be moving to Rosebery House.

“Haymarket provides excellent access to a number of our key licensed organisations based within a short distance.  The refurbished 2nd floor office has been designed to accommodate excellent training and IT facilities which matches our ambition to build the capacity of our network to deliver more opportunities for young people.

“The move to Rosebery House is starting at an important time for the DofE in Scotland as we look to significantly increase our work across the country.”

Craig Watson, Associate Director, Jones Lang LaSalle added: “The majority of demand in Edinburgh remains focused on accommodation of 2,500 sq ft or less and there is a distinct preference for good quality open plan space at an affordable rental level.

“Rosebery House offers The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award open plan accommodation which is being refurbished to suit their exact specifications whilst matching their budgetary requirements.

“The charity will also benefit from Rosebery House’s location, which is directly adjacent to Haymarket station, with connections to all modes of transport.”
