£65m commercial leisure development in Ayrshire

by Caroline Wilkinson | 09 Sep 2008

Property developer The Klin Group has submitted plans for a 27-room boutique hotel and retail complex to East Ayrshire Council in Scotland.

The Encore Project, which is expected to cost around £65m, will result in a series of derelict buildings being converted into a five-storey, 40,000sq ft tower, in the Victorian Quarter of Kilmarnock’s town centre.

When complete, the building will house restaurants, retail stores and the hotel as part of plans to regenerate the town. Plans have been submitted for the first part of a three phase project.

Opposite the hotel will be 25 concierge-serviced apartments. The project has been planned in conjunction with Syme Gunn Mackay property consultants and Smith Associates Chartered Architects.

Klin Group's chief executive Marie Macklin said: “The Encore prokect is a clear signal that decline in the town of Kilmarnock is being reversed.

“This is not about some new shiny development, it’s about a former industrial town reinventing itself into a bespoke quality-driven tourist destination.”
