The Lamp of Lothian charity is set to re-launch one of their most iconic properties as a brand new modernised multi-let office building.
Located on the town’s Sidegate, the previously Savills occupied Haddington House will now undergo a significant six-figure refurbishment and modernisation programme.
Iain Mercer, Director of Commercial Agency (East) at Allied Surveyors Scotland said: “Haddington is a fast-growing and popular market town and we know there is pent up demand from businesses looking for good quality office premises.”
Allied Surveyors’ East Coast agency branch has been appointed to market the accommodation which will provide office space from 100 sq ft to 3,000 sq ft over three floors.
Iain adds: “The building will provide space of varying sizes and tenants will also be able to enjoy the fabulous gardens which sit just behind the building.”
The Lamp of Lothian charity which was founded in 1967 by the late Duchess of Hamilton, has submitted a planning application for the redevelopment, and are hoping to be approved by the summer.
The charity’s portfolio in Haddington also extends to Poldrate Mill, Granary and Mault House and Alistair Grant Hall, currently catering for around 1,000 visitors per week.
Jenny Harper, Vice Chairman of The Lamp of Lothian Board of Trustees, commented: “Haddington House is the jewel in The Lamp of Lothian’s crown and our principle revenue-producing asset which allows us to provide a range of free facilities to the local community.
“The investment we are making in Haddington House will future proof the building, and we are looking forward to welcoming new tenants later in the year.”
