Edinburgh Serviced Office Set for Official Launch
A brand new business centre on Melville Street in Edinburgh, the former set of Richard Jobson’s film New Town Killers, will be officially opened this afternoon by former Labour minister Rt. Hon. Lord George Foulkes.
Edinburgh-born property developer Brian Cormack bought the building in 2007, but before any office conversion plans could be put into action, Brian was approached by a production company and the property soon became a bustling film set. Two movies took place here – the aforementioned New Town Killers starring Dougray Scott and Alistair Mackenzie, followed by Bollywood movie The Season of Love.
Once production had been completed, a ┬ú500,000 redevelopment got underway to convert the historic building – located in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, close to Princes Street and Charlotte Square – into fully serviced office space for small and medium sized businesses.
Today marks the official launch of the business centre, which will be overseen by Rt. Hon. Lord George Foulkes at 4.30pm this afternoon.
After declaring the centre officially open, Lord Foulkes will join property developer Brian Cormack and Douglas Ferrans, chairman of HBOS subsidiary Invista, along with an expected 50 guests from the business world for a champagne reception inside the property.
Among the highlights and entertainment laid on for guests is a harpist and contemporary piper, tastings of the new ‘Melville’s’ fruit beer by Edinburgh-based Innis & Gunn, and whisky cocktails courtesy of Montpeliers Ltd – prepared by Tigerlily’s leading mixologist, Ross Montgomery.
Grant Stott, presenter of Forth One, will also be present to receive a cheque from the business centre for children’s fundraising charity, Cash for Kids.
