Hotel bid for office block

Have your say

PLANS have been submitted to turn an empty office block in St Andrew Square into a major new hotel.

The former Scottish Life building has been earmarked for the 103-room development after lying empty for three years.

Although an operator has not been confirmed for the site, council chiefs are anxious it should not become another budget hotel.

The application is being pursued by Royal London, the UK’s biggest mutual life firm, which bought Scottish Life 11 years ago.
