Developers have lodged bids worth more than £5 million to transform a block of derelict council offices located in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, it is understood.

The former offices and storage premises in King’s Stables Road have been subject to ­several bids to convert the property into student housing or a hotel development.

But at least one potential buyer is championing a ­community vision to convert the properties into an arts hub boasting galleries, performances spaces and boutique shops.
