The Vision

Designed by Allan Murray Architects, the 1.7 million sq ft Edinburgh St James scheme sees the site's former 1970s shopping centre replaced with 850,000 sq ft of retail space, a luxury hotel, up to 150 new homes, 30 restaurants and a multi-screen cinema.

Set against a stunning backdrop, Edinburgh St James will introduce high-street, aspirational
and lifestyle brands to one of the world's finest locations.

The new development will be the Scottish capital’s prime shopping destination and new heart of the city, linking with and expanding the existing retail pitch of George Street, Princes Street and Multrees Walk. Its outstanding connectivity will create an exciting hub for Edinburgh’s thriving day and night-time economy – the new beating heart of the city centre.
