John Lewis to anchor Edinburgh’s flagship St James development
November 16 2015
Edinburgh St James will see the existing seventies mall replaced with 85 stores, 30 restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and 210 room hotel upon completion with the refurbished department store taking centre stage.
This will singlehandedly elevate Edinburgh from the 13th to eighth most important UK retail destination.
Martin Perry, director of development at TH Real Estate, said: “The signing of the John Lewis deal is an important milestone and we are delighted that they will anchor the scheme, in addition to remaining open for business throughout construction. It has always been our ambition to deliver a world class destination for Scotland and this important piece of the jigsaw brings us ever closer to starting on site in spring next year.
Construction work is expected to get underway in early 2016 on the Allan Murray Architects design, with completion expected by 2020.
