Plans for Edinburgh's first new concert hall in a century have been approved.
Local councillors voted on Wednesday (November 24) in favour of the £75m project to be sited between St Andrew's Square and the St James Quarter.
Due to open in 2026, the venue will host music of all kinds as well as spoken word events and act as the new home of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.
Previous plans were scuppered by a legal challenge from developers of a nearby hotel complex.
Edinburgh City Council, the Scottish Government, UK Government, and American philanthropist Carol Grigor are funding the project.
