Demolition work of the annex of The Royal Bank of Scotland on St Andrew Square in Edinburgh began today. Once cleared, the new Dunard Center willé be built on this site. The building designed by David Chipperfield Architect and acousticians Nagata Academy will become a 1,000 seat venue.

The Dunard Centre is being funded through substantial philanthropic donations, including the visionary support of Dunard Fund, and underpinned by £25 million support from the Scottish and UK governments and the City of Edinburgh Council, as part of the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal. Royal Bank of Scotland is supporting the project by providing a long-term lease for the land which sits directly behind Dundas House on St Andrew Square.
