Construction work view from Leith Street, Edinburgh St James
Looking across the large construction site of the Edinburgh St James development which is being built on the site of the former St James Mall shopping centre. The building remaining intact on the right houses a John Lewis department store which was part of the old centre, but is not being demolished as part of the works.
Edinburgh St James
The demolition of the unlovely 1960s St James' Centre just beyond the eastern end of Princes Street, to be reconstructed as Edinburgh St James - a large retail, hotel, residential and leisure development

The construction phase began on 17 October 2016, with the closure of the St James Shopping Centre and the beginning of its demolition, which is anticipated to take around 18 months to complete. Leith Street is closed until 31 August 2018. The retail and leisure element is anticipated to complete in 2020, followed by full scheme completion in 2021.
