Maslow Capital has provided a £63m development facility, supporting the development of New Eidyn, a new prime residential development, featuring 152 strikingly designed and beautifully finished apartments, within Edinburgh’s wider St James Quarter regeneration project.
St James Quarter is one of the most significant city centre transformations currently underway in the U.K. It is a new quarter for the city, with a stunning new shopping galleria housing 80 new brands, an enticing mix of restaurants and bars as well as a luxury W Edinburgh hotel, a boutique Everyman Cinema, and a Roomzzz Aparthotel still underway.
With the entire shell and core of the building already complete, Maslow’s loan will support all of the internal works associated with the 152-unit residential development. These will feature stunning views, elevated outdoor landscaping and sky gardens, common areas including a garden room, and unparalleled residents’ services such as full concierge, the development will set the standard for city centre living in Edinburgh.
The scheme which is being developed by Nuveen Real Estate and QPL, is a prime example of city-enhancing place-making and will be a unique and inspiring place to live in and visit. New Eidyn will comprise three distinct buildings that will sit on the fifth to eighth floors of the St James Quarter development, above the retail galleria and adjacent to other amenities such as the W Edinburgh hotel, Everyman Cinema and Roomzzz Aparthotel.
Matt Pigram, Partner and Head of Deal Origination at Maslow Capital, said: “Maslow Capital are delighted to support Nuveen Real Estate and QPL with the delivery of their ambitious project. Set to complete in Q3 2022, New Eidyn will add 152 well placed apartments to Edinburgh’s iconic city centre, creating a brand new neighbourhood which is surrounded by top class amenities.”
James Henry, Deal Origination at Maslow Capital, added: “We are thrilled to be supporting the development of a truly landmark scheme of such quality, in the heart of Edinburgh, for sponsors of exceptionally high calibre. Upon completion of the scheme, residents will benefit from being part of the wider St James Quarter, which is one of the largest regeneration projects in the United Kingdom, with 1.7 million sq. ft. of retail, leisure and hotel space, injecting over £1 billion of investment into Edinburgh.”
