Edinburgh St James is a prime example of city enhancing place making - a result of best in class design and delivery. By taking a strategic and integrated approach to the planning, design and management of the project, Edinburgh St James will create a unique, inspiring place to live and visit, set within and integrating with the historic context of the New Town and world heritage site.
The scheme has been designed to create an intuitive and accessible circuit around the city – anchored by places and experiences that will draw people from one place to the next – a key component of the map of the city.
Connection with great transport links within the retail circuit will aid shoppers’ mobile experience and accessibility. It is an environment that emphasises the experience of people and not just cars (the latter will be accommodated in lower levels).
The scheme will introduce three high quality intimate yet substantial public spaces all connected by routes and streets to encourage a strong sense of place.
