Steven Newlands, partner in Cushman & Wakefield’s Scottish capital markets group, said: “This is a rare opportunity for investors to own an entire block in a prime location in Princes Street – properties of this calibre don’t come up very often.

“With trams now running successfully and increasing footfall levels, Princes Street is much in demand with retailers.”
