Whiteburn - The Tun

Whiteburn Portfolio: The Tun

Whiteburn secured an option on the former East Tun building on the Scottish Courage brewery site, just prior to the Donald Dewar’s announcement that Holyrood was chosen to be the location for Scotland’s new parliament.

Following a design competition, we appointed Allan Murray Architects, who then obtained consent for a mixed-use development –retaining the old brewery shell and adding a striking new facade canted onto Holyrood Road.

From here we initially secured the BBC as anchor tenant, before adding a further array of government, public sector and cultural occupiers (British Council, European Parliament, Scottish Enterprise) and a pub, plus in the interim the Scottish Parliament visitor centre, which was then converted to an oriental restaurant and bar.

The Tun went on to win the British Council for Offices (BCO) awards for Best Commercial Workplace in Scotland and the UK – a testament to Whiteburn’s place-making achievement.

Whiteburn held The Tun as an investment to first review, then sold on to an investment fund.
