Charlie Miller to feature at Raeburn Place

18 June 2018

We are pleased to announce that Charlie Miller is the latest tenant to sign a lease agreement for our new development at Raeburn Place.

Our Chairman, David Newlands, said:

“I know I speak for all the trustees in saying we are delighted to have secured Charlie Miller for Raeburn Place. They are an award-winning Edinburgh-based company with a 50-year provenance and a well-deserved reputation for quality and creativity. Bringing them to Stockbridge will attract their loyal clientele here too, increasing footfall and benefiting the local economy.”

Josh Miller, Joint Managing Director, Charlie Miller, said:

“Charlie Miller’s essence has always been evolution and we are excited to announce this next step in our journey. Stockbridge is a key location in Edinburgh and one we have had an eye on for a while. The new development at Raeburn Place will provide us with a salon that meets our stringent requirements, in a popular part of the city. We look forward to opening our doors in 2019.”

In redeveloping the famous sports ground at Raeburn Place, where the first rugby international was held, we will create first-class sports and recreational facilities that are fit for the 21st century and open and accessible to all.

The commercial units that will be located along Comely Bank Road are central to our plans. They will provide the annual income necessary to ensure the Foundation's financial sustainability and enable us to meet our charitable objectives, which include the advancement of public participation in sport and the advancement of heritage. In practical terms, this includes actively supporting sports organisations, including Edinburgh BATs, a community youth rugby programme, other charitable initiatives and the Museum of International Rugby, as well as maintaining the facilities and sports ground at Raeburn Place.

Charlie Miller will join Marks & Spencer Simply Food and Waterstones as tenants, taking unit 2, which is approximately 250m². The trustees look forward to making announcements about further tenants in the near future.
