General Information
New Reiver House is a modern office development situated to the west of Galashiels Town Centre.

Galashiels with a population of approximately 14,000 is one of the largest towns in the Scottish Borders and is generally considered to be the principal, administrative, social and retail centre for the region effectively serving a population of in excess of 110,000.

There is a significant student population within the town with campuses of Heriot Watt university and Borders College.  Within recent years Galashiels has benefited from considerable public and private investment.  Developments have included the Gala Water retail park, two new supermarkets to the east of the town centre and significant transport infrastructure works including the Galashiels inner relief road, the Borders Railway link re-establishing passenger services between Edinburgh Waverley and the Central Borders.  The recently completed transport interchange is situated a short walk to the north west of the subjects.  The journey time from Galashiels to Edinburgh City Centre by train is approximately 55 minutes, with departures every 30 minutes.  On week days the first train departs from Edinburgh at 0545, the last at 2355.

This is a mixed use town centre position generally characterised by retail, office and food uses to ground floor level with residential accommodation to upper levels. The Great Tapestry of Scotland, a unique 143 metre long community arts project is due to be housed in a purpose built development a short distance to the east as part of a £6.7 million town centre development. The Great Tapestry of Scotland was handcrafted by volunteers contributing over 50,000 hours stiching 160 panels to present the entire history of Scotland and is anticipated to increase footfall within the town centre.
