Edinburgh St James is the city’s largest development in a generation. A new and modern 1.7 million sq ft masterplan in urban placemaking, it is one of the UK’s largest current regeneration projects.
Occupying a prime location at the heart of the city centre, this truly mixed-use destination offers 850,000 sq ft of retail space, complemented by living, leisure, and entertainment at W Edinburgh, a Roomzzz Aparthotel, 152 unique apartments by Native Land, 30 restaurants and places to eat, including a food hall, and a five-screen Everyman cinema.
Opening in 2020, Edinburgh St James is forecast to welcome in excess of 20 million visitors a year – the highest footfall of any retail and leisure destination in Scotland. In response, the city centre’s prime pitch is already moving towards it, an acknowledgment of the powerful impact this new destination will have on the Scottish capital.
