Scarborough Muir Group unveils £250m plan to develop Rosyth Waterfront in Scotland
September 07, 2017 – Scarborough Muir Group has unveiled a new masterplan to develop Rosyth Waterfront in Scotland that will provide industrial, office, warehouse and leisure space.
The announcement of £250m project coincides with the opening of the new £1.35bn Queensferry Crossing, one of the tallest road bridge in the UK.
The development, dubbed Queensferry One, will spread over an area of 120 acres. It will feature 450,000 sq ft of new office space, 800,000 sq ft of industrial, manufacturing and logistics warehouse space.
Additionally, the project will include 60,000 sq ft for roadside type uses, including a service station and food outlets, and a 120-bed budget hotel.
Scarborough Muir Group property director William McAlister said: “The opening of the Queensferry Crossing means that Fife is truly open for business as connectivity issues are addressed.
“Queensferry One has a unique opportunity to take advantage of this and offers the perfect multi-modal hub, with direct port, rail, motorway and public transport links.
“It is a highly flexible site and benefits from access to a skilled workforce. The masterplan reflects the primarily commercial uses that the site has been allocated for in the new FIFEplan and will provide a stunning setting for businesses looking to relocate, expand or set up. We estimate that 8,000 could be employed when the site is fully developed.”
Upon completion, the new project is expected to create nearly 8,000 jobs.
