Picardy Place forms a principal road junction to the north east of Edinburgh City Centre, situated
within the Edinburgh World Heritage Site and the New Town Conservation Area.
Working alongside Laing O’Rourke for the City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government,
TH Real Estate – the developer of Edinburgh St James – in line with the Growth Accelerator
Model agreement, has commissioned a team to prepare a comprehensive design package for the
remodelling of roads and public realm at Picardy Place.
The design seeks to provide an optimised layout, which better addresses and improves pedestrian,
cycle and vehicle movement and which best utilises the space in order to achieve this.
The City of Edinburgh Council will consider the finalised designs and agree the detailed programme
for delivery of these works.
