Property developer Chris Stewart Group has appointed construction services firm ISG to build a flagship multimillion-pound office and leisure project as part of the wider redevelopment of The Registers district in Edinburgh.
Part of the comprehensive regeneration of the south-east corner of St Andrew Square, the new mixed-use Mint Building scheme will see ISG create 61,000 square feet of office accommodation and 11,000sq ft of leisure space at ground and basement levels.

Incorporating an 1860s warehouse, constructed in the Venetian Gothic style, the building will retain and repair the imposing facade, but extend capacity via a new steel frame structure.
Andy McLinden, managing director of ISG’s Scottish business, said: “There are encouraging signs of growth in the Edinburgh office market and reinvigorating existing assets is a key trend.”
