New virtual tour gives glimpse inside Edinburgh's new St James Quarter luxury apartments
A first glimpse in to the luxury apartments at New Eidyn have been revealed
A first look into the luxury apartments located at St James Quarter has been unveiled by developers, Native Land.
The development which is in a UNESCO World Heritage site is named ‘New Eidyn’ after the medieval settlement of Din Eidyn which was thought to have been located at Castle Rock and now the site of Edinburgh Castle.
The development will see 152 prestigious apartments located between the fifth and eighth floors of the £1 billion St James Quarter project which is now nearing completion.
The first phase of 24 apartments are now on sale and buyers are expected from in and around Edinburgh as well as across the UK and internationally.
The apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering unrivalled and unique views of the Capital and natural materials such as stone worktops and wooden flooring.
Starting at £350,000 for a studio apartment, prices of over £1 million can be expected for three bedroom premium apartments located at the city’s latest exclusive address.
The residences at New Eidyn also feature a number of hotel-style amenities for owners to enjoy in St James Quarter including underground parking, ground floor reception and concierge, 24-hour security and membership rights to the W Edinburgh hotel’s gym.
All residents will also benefit from unique private ‘sky gardens’ on the fifth floor, which will offer captivating, panoramic views across the Firth of Forth.
The shops in the St James Quarter project which will be on New Eidyn resident’s doorsteps were due to open in October this year, but because of Covid are now expected to welcome customers soon after Easter.
All the other parts of the development are also due to open next year apart from the W hotel, which is scheduled for 2022.
30 restaurants and bars including @Pizza, The Alchemist, and Bonnie & Wild - a new concept food hall by Scottish restaurant brand, Mac & Wild which have all been confirmed will occupy a space in the new St James Quarter as well as over 80 shops, some which are the first in the country, including & Other Stories, Mango, Zara, Bershka, Pull & Bear, Stradivarius, Russell & Bromley, Miele, and John Lewis.
The new development on the doorstep of the apartments will also have a luxury W Edinburgh, a boutique Everyman Cinema, a Roomzzz Aparthotel and nine event spaces set to host a variety of pop-up fashion and music shows.
An events programme is being created for next year’s festival time, with up to 27 shows a day.
Nicholas Gray, director of sales and marketing at Native Land, said: “New Eidyn sets a new standard of city centre living in Edinburgh. We are building 152 exceptional apartments right in the centre of a UNESCO World Heritage site while also offering unmatched amenities.
“This kind of development is rarely found. We expect buyer interest from overseas as well as domestically, given Edinburgh’s international standing.”
The first phase of the development is available to buy now through sales agents Rettie & Co.
