Student bed project 2018

Subsequently in 2018 Scarlett Land and Development were retained by The University of Edinburgh to assist and advise in the fulfilment of a 2,000 student bed requirement.

“We have worked with Will over recent years and approached Scarlett Land and Development most recently to assist with our property strategy.  We value market information, a low profile approach and trusted advisors and have found that Scarlett Land and Development meet this criteria.  We look forward to working with them again.”
