Scotland’s online construction directory – Build Scotland.com – has featured a release detailing retail giant Primark’s proposal for its new Edinburgh store.
The store which is proposed to be opened on Edinburgh Princes Street will form a flagship store for Scotland – giving residents in Scotland and also the UK the ultimate shopping experience.
The store has now submitted a detailed planning application to the City of Edinburgh Council and the plans have been heavily influenced by comments and feedback during an extensive three month public consultation period.
The proposed 75,000 sq ft site will be the retailer’s 18th store in Scotland and would provide a much needed boost to the economy – creating hundreds of construction and retail jobs.
Councillor Tom Buchanan, Convener for Economic Development was quoted in the article: “With planning applications having been submitted I look forward to the development progressing to the next stage.
“Like us, Primark recognise the tremendous importnace of Princes Street as a shopping destination and I am delighted that, in order to make the very most of this oppurtunity they took the time to consult so widely with the public.
“We are continuing to work closely with Primark to help them realise their ambitions to open a flagship store here in the centre of Scotland’s capital.”
A spokesperson for Primark adds: “We have wanted to open a flagship store in Edinburgh for some time, so it is very pleasing to see the development taking the next step into becoming a reality.
“I would like to take this oppurtunity to thank all the people who responded during the public consultation and made their views about the building known on the website.
“There was a good level of support for the building, but we have also taken on board a number of comments and shaped our final proposals according to this feedback.”
