The surrounding area is principally residential but there is a strong retail presence too with occupiers such as Tax Assist Accountants, Ladbrokes and Scotmid Co-operative.
The site enjoys excellent passing trade generated by the number of flatted dwellings and tenements in the area and also local businesses.
The subjects comprise a self-contained hot food take-away configured over ground and basement, forming part of a traditional Edinburgh tenement building.
Occupying a highly prominent corner pitch, the property is very visible to passing trade due to its sky blue paintwork and eye catching signage.
