Steelwork continues apace on St James retail scheme

Posted on by in News

A major transformation is taking place in Edinburgh city centre as the St James Centre continues to take shape.

The project will reinvigorate the city’s East End and will provide 79,000m² of retail and leisure space including Edinburgh’s first Everyman Cinema, a W Hotel with over 200 rooms, and 150 residential apartments.

Martin Perry, Project Director, Edinburgh St James, said: “Edinburgh St James is going to be a major new landmark for the city, opening up the East End of Edinburgh and creating a truly inspiring place for people to live, shop and play. We look forward to making further announcements about progress on site ahead of the opening in 2020.”

Working on behalf of main contractor Laing O’Rourke, BHC will fabricate, supply and erect approximately 15,000t of steel for the project.
