One of Edinburgh’s newest and greenest office developments, 30 Semple Street, has secured its first pre-letting tenant six months before construction completes.

Six months prior to completion of building works, independent pensions and investment advisory firm Hymans Robertson is the first tenant to sign up to 30 Semple Street – the office development being undertaken by Corran Properties Limited on behalf of CBRE Investment Management in Edinburgh’s prime Exchange District.

Hymans Robertson has committed to lease the 5th and 6th floors – extending to 14,700 sq ft – along with roof-top terraces, which provide clear views over Edinburgh’s skyline.

The development has achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘outstanding’, a design-reviewed NABERS 5* target rating and a platinum AirScore, amongst other accreditations. CBRE Investment Management’s ambition to achieve such high ESG standards was crucial to Hymans Robertson.

Alix Mills, senior director at CBRE Investment Management, said: “To attract a tenant of such high calibre to our flagship office development in Edinburgh is tremendous testament to the high-quality design of 30 Semple Street, and the commitment of our entire team to meet the very highest standards of environmental performance.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Hymans Robertson to 30 Semple Street.”

Shireen Anisuddin, managing partner of Hymans Robertson, added: “We’re really excited to be moving into 30 Semple Street. We have over 200 of our people in Edinburgh and it will be fantastic for them to benefit from this high-quality space.

“In particular, we are pleased to be moving to an office with exceptional environmental credentials and this is also very much aligned with our priorities as a B Corp-certified firm.

“A key factor in our decision was to maintain our location in central Edinburgh and we are naturally delighted to have secured space with such attractive views. We are very much looking forward to taking up residence.”

With construction works ongoing, the 57,000 sq ft building is due to complete in September 2024. The landlord’s team was represented by Knight Frank, Cuthbert White and Brodies. Hymans Robertson was represented by Cushman & Wakefield and Burness Paull.
