Haddington House reaches 90% occupancy one month before completion

Only one office remains at Haddington House

The Lamp of Lothian’s Haddington House has reached 90% occupancy after 6 tenants snapped up 11 of the 12 available offices in advance of next month’s planned completion.

 The charity, founded in 1967 by the late Duchess of Hamilton, has invested a six-figure sum in refurbishing and modernising the iconic category A-listed building in Haddington’s Sidegate.

Only one office suite remains after nearly 3,000 sq ft of lettings were completed by agents Allied Surveyors Scotland who were appointed to market the building’s three floors.

 “The demand levels for this property has underlined the necessity for good quality business space in East Lothian,” said Allied Surveyors’ director of commercial agency (east) Iain Mercer.

 “Now with only one room of 300 sq ft available we would urge any interested parties to get in touch before the fully let sign goes up.”

Chairman of Lamp of Lothian Board of Trustees, Jenny Harper, commented:

“The commercial letting of Haddington House enables The Lamp to continue our charitable work which extends to Poldrate Mill, Granary and Mault House and the Alistair Grant Hall, which facilitates over 1000 users every week.”

“We have been delighted with the interest shown in the office space at Haddington House since we started the refurbishment last year”

Meanwhile, elsewhere in East Lothian, Allied Surveyors is marketing a range of business space at Cockenzie Business Hub and Newhailes Business Park
