The Silver Fin Building
The illuminated office block of the Silver Fin Building towering over Union Street, as seen at night from Rose Street.

The Silver Fin Building was completed in 2017. The building was the work of property agents, FG Burnett and CBRE, acting on behalf of the developer Titan Investors.

The 132,000 sq. ft. development had an estimated starting budget of £65 million. In 2015 the construction contract was awarded to the Sir Robert McAlpine company.

In addition to the tower block, the development includes a new Scottish granite façade on Union Street. Preparatory demolition at the location started in late 2014. It was previously the site of the Bell's Lounge pub.

The building is 13 storeys high, with four car parking floors and nine occupied floors. It sits just to the east of the near contemporaneous Capitol office development.

Privately owned serviced office provider, Orega, let approximately 20% of the building around the time of completion.

The building's name comes from the vertical aluminium fins which form part of its cladding and were designed to catch the light.
