St James Quarter, the 1.7m sq ft retail-led lifestyle district in Edinburgh, will lease a collective 8,084sq ft to COS and NEOM.
Chris Pyne, head of leasing at St James Quarter, commented: “These new signings bring us a step closer to fully letting the galleria, and with the whole scheme now 95% let we have put ourselves an enviable position one year since opening. The centre has dealt remarkably well with the effects of the pandemic, with a continued positive response from our customer base translating to increased footfall levels and occupier demand from standout retail, cosmetic, leisure and F&B brands who can see the long-term appeal of the lifestyle-led retail destination that is St James Quarter.”
Fashion brand COS has picked the lifestyle quarter as the location for its new Scotland store, which will feature an interesting new concept for its fit out. This will be its first store in Edinburgh spanning 7,483sq ft.
Wellbeing specialists NEOM Organics will also be opening the doors to a 601sq ft haven for customers to discover each of the brand’s natural wellbeing ranges.
St James Quarter’s latest announcement follows on from a flurry of F&B signings including itsu and The Botanist.
