Rettie & Co has been appointed as selling agent for the site – named after the Roperie and Sailcloth Company, founded there in 1750.

Craig Gillespie, senior property broker at Rettie, said: “We are excited to be working with The Teague Group again, this time on a development that will be nothing short of transformative for this part of Leith.”
