Top Edinburgh developer announces fitting charity partnership

Landmark project paves the way for children’s charity sponsorship

A PREMIUM developer which is transforming the former Royal Hospital for Sick Children building has now announced a partnership with the charity that supported it.

Square & Crescent has officially partnered with Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC) after kicking off the careful refurbishment of The Royal Hospital for Sick Children earlier this year.

The premium Edinburgh developer is now an official charity partner of ECHC, which helps seriously ill children across the Lothians by supporting their medical care, mental health, and family’s wellbeing.

ECHC’s former headquarters is one of the buildings being converted within the major Royal Meadows development, which will see the former hospital building transformed into a mix of luxury townhouses and apartments.

Kate Dixon, Corporate & Partnerships Lead at Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity said: “Our work is reliant on support from donations, volunteers, and corporate partners so to have the backing of one of Edinburgh’s finest residential developers is extremely valuable to us.

“The former hospital building has a lot of meaning to us and the partnership instantly made sense as it allows us to keep a connection.

“We help thousands of children who visit hospital every year. Being ill and needing hospital care can be difficult, scary, and lonely and we work hard to make the experience as positive as possible.

“Whether it’s bringing pioneering equipment to Scotland, designing a dance class to support children’s physiotherapy, performing theatre in critical care or transforming a clinical area – Square & Crescent’s support is going to be integral to helping us reach every child who comes through the hospital doors.”

To kick off its partnership, the Square & Crescent team are preparing to tackle Edinburgh’s Seven Hills Challenge to raise much needed funds.

The charity was founded in the 1980s where it was based at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children site near Edinburgh’s Meadows, before the hospital’s relocation to Little France in 2021.

The Royal Meadows development is targeted for completion in 2025, and is set to launch a sales suite in late summer this year. It spans across four-acres and is situated one mile from Princes Street and a short walk from Lothian Road, benefitting from a city centre location.

Euan Marshall, Co-Founder and joint Managing Director of Square & Crescent said: “The work Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity is doing is priceless for children and young people across the city and beyond.

“There is a natural link between Royal Meadows and Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, so the partnership already has a special meaning.

“From company-wide challenges to voluntary days and donations, we can’t wait to help in whatever way we can to support the charity’s incredible efforts.”

Square & Crescent is now a widely-regarded residential developer with a primary focus on the acquisition, development and refurbishment of beautiful homes.
