Working alongside Laing O’Rourke for the
City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish
Government, TH Real Estate – the developer
of Edinburgh St James – has commissioned
a team to prepare a comprehensive design
package for the remodelling of roads and
public realm at Picardy Place.

In the coming months, Leith Street will be closing for a short period. This closure will allow cranes to be installed for the nearby Edinburgh St James development.

The works will run in two separate phases:


Start date: 5 May 2019
End date: 25 May 2019
Working hours: 06:00 – 22:00, seven days a week


Start date: 6 June 2019
End date: 11 June 2019
Working hours: 06:00 – 22:00, seven days a week

Leith Street will re-open in between these phases of work. We would like to apologise for the inconvenience that this will cause and thank you for your patience.
