So we announced in the Spring we were heading to the capital city, Edinburgh.
Home of the Scottish Parliament, the Castle, Greyfriars Bobby and now our first joint project is set for the capital.
Partnering with Scotmid Co-operative, we hope to bring a new and refreshing development to the local area.
Our proposal is for a new state of the art store, together with student accommodation, at 236 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh.
Our joint submission will see the community convenience store transformed, which Scotmid will continue run, and student apartments, management by our in-house operation run by BOHO.
"This is a major development for Scotmid and we are proud to forge a partnership with a co-operative that has strong values and a history of supporting its local communities. Bringing local amenities together with student accommodation will further strengthen our offering for students in the area and bring a significant boost to the local economy."

We have teamed up with Edinburgh's Mansion Architects which has run number of large-scale projects and has been nominated for previous Property Awards as well as being listed as an Urban Realm Top 100.
The apartments will include internal amenity in the form of lounge/kitchen/dining areas for each cluster flat and a shared common room on the top floor to encourage social well-being for students. Bike storage will also be provided on the ground floor and each student will have a space for their bike.
From conception to completion, we look after our buildings and our people and will be managing the build through our in-house management team, BOHO.
The proposed development, subject to planning, should to be completed by 2020 with the store back in operation and servicing the local community before the end of 2019.
