Primark opens bespoke store at Fort Kinnaird shopping and leisure park, Edinburgh
Primark has opened a new 38,800-sq ft store at The Gibraltar Limited Partnership’s Fort Kinnaird shopping and leisure park in Edinburgh. British Land is Property Adviser to the Gibraltar Limited Partnership.
The distinctive new building, which features bespoke bronze cladding and a double height shop front, was designed by architect 3D Reid and provides a unique retail environment for Fort Kinnaird shoppers.
James Varley, asset manager for British Land, said: “At Fort Kinnaird we continue to improve the retail and leisure offer to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our shoppers. The new Primark is an example of how we work closely with our occupiers to meet their needs and deliver great stores. The new Primark with its innovative design is proving to be a really popular addition to the scheme.”
The opening of the store follows completion of Fort Kinnaird’s new leisure extension which opened in 2015. The 57,000-sq ft extension features a seven-screen Odeon cinema and a range of restaurants including Pizza Express, Nando’s, Five Guys, Frankie & Benny’s, Chiquito and TGI Fridays. It was completed as part of a wider £80m investment programme which focused on extending the retail and leisure space across four HUT assets.
Gibraltar Limited Partnership was advised by Eric Young & Co and Paradigm Property Consultants.
