Chris Richardson, investment director at Ambassador Group, said: “We are extremely pleased at Ambassador to get this deal completed, especially when there is a lack of good stock when the market is especially buoyant from an occupier and growth perspective.

"It is a great addition to our portfolio of assets in Scotland adding four quality office buildings in a prime Edinburgh location where there is so much activity. We look forward to working with the tenants to make sure they have available to them the best possible space and occupier experience at Broadway Park.”

Nick Prior, co-founder of Oval Real Estate, added: “We are pleased to sell following a repositioning of the asset to bring Aberdeen Standard [Investments] to the park on a long-term lease.”
