Pleasance Deaconess building sold?

Lothian Health Board have announced that they have a preferred bidder for the Deaconess building which they recently vacated for new headquarters at Waverleygate at the east end of Princes Street.

New rules mean they will not benefit from the £4m from the sale - which will be swept into the coffers of the Holyrood Government. See this article.

The sale, when it goes through, will be good news for local businesses, which have suffered with the loss of the substantial NHS workforce which used to frequent local shops.
