2 Semple Street Completes

MLA have recently completed 2 Semple Street (2SS), a 61,000sqft, six-storey speculative office development in Fountainbridge, on behalf of clients GSS Developments.

Completing the south-west edge of the Exchange District, 2SS creates a new corner building with a considered, quality aesthetic that improves and completes the urban block to Semple Street and Fountainbridge.

From the outset, we worked with the clients, GSS Developments, to create a modern building with a timeless design and a high quality, grade A interior that would appeal to a variety of tenants.

Amongst the high-quality facilities included are electric car charging points, a dedicated cycle lane that leads to an award-winning cycle storage and maintenance area, and bespoke shower and changing facilities.

All floors have fantastic levels of light from the floor to ceiling glazing, with the top floor gaining spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle and the Pentland Hills.

On the ground floor, a flexible concierge desk and waiting booths replace the traditional reception area staple of desk and sofas. This allows for multi-occupancy with minimum changes to the entrance area. A retail unit activates the street corner.

We were delighted to work with a client who had the same ambitions when it came to providing a quality finish. Currently seeking occupiers, we are sure this building will soon provide a superb new home for its new tenants.
