Edinburgh St James is a 1.7 million sq ft city centre development and one of the biggest regeneration projects currently underway in the UK. On completion, Edinburgh St James will provide the Scottish capital with up to 850000 sq ft of prime retail space, five star hotel accommodation, up to 250 new private residential apartments, 30 restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and 1,600 car park spaces equating to over half of Edinburgh’s available covered car parking spaces. 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. A world-class example of city enhancing place-making, Edinburgh St James will be one of the UK's largest and most significant regeneration projects. Construction started in 2016, with completion due in 2020.
