Native Land has been announced as the residential partner in TH Real Estate’s 1.7 million sqft mixed-use scheme, which is part of one of the largest regeneration projects currently underway in the UK.
The Edinburgh St James residential element comprises approximately 150 apartments, which will offer unrivalled amenities and unparalleled views across the UNESCO World Heritage City. Edinburgh St James will see the 1970’s shopping centre currently on site replaced with 850,000 sqft of retail space, a multi-screen cinema, and the internationally recognised W Hotel, in addition to the residential element.
Native Land has teamed up with Queensberry Properties, as the Developer of the residential component of the project. Native Land is renowned for its expertise in delivering high quality residential developments in the prime central London market and is behind several of the city’s most acclaimed apartment buildings, including 10 Montrose Place in Belgravia, Stirling Prize shortlisted NEO Bankside and Burlington Gate in Mayfair.
Queensberry Properties, a partnership between one of Scotland’s leading housebuilders, Cruden Homes, and established investment and development business, Buccleuch Property, will provide significant local insight. Buccleuch Property is also a long-standing shareholder in Native Land.
Alasdair Nicholls, Chief Executive of Native Land, commented:
“Edinburgh St James represents a natural first move outside of our core London business, allowing us to become part of a significant mixed-use project in a world-class city. The partnership with TH Real Estate will set a new standard for quality at the top end of the Edinburgh residential market.
