UK: Roomzzz will open an aparthotel as part of the £1 billion Edinburgh St James mixed-use development, which is scheduled to open in 2021.

The 73-room aparthotel, will be the development's second hotel, alongside W Hotels' first property in Scotland. It will feature a rooftop terrace and balconies throughout.

St James is the largest retail-led mixed-use regeneration project currently underway in the UK, covering a total of 1.7 million square feet.

Ed Webb, director of development management for developer TH Real Estate, said: "With over 1.5 million international visitors making their way to the city each year, Edinburgh remains a strong choice for both UK and international leisure operators. The aparthotel, alongside the W Edinburgh, Everyman Cinema, rooftop restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, public spaces and homes, will create a bespoke destination, opening up a new vista with unique views across the city - creating a place that is actively sought-out by residents and visitors alike."

Chief executive of Roomzzz, Naveen Ahmed, said: "Set to become the city's hottest new retail destination and with excellent transport links, the Edinburgh St James development is the perfect location for the Roomzzz brand to launch its first aparthotel in Scotland. Our expansion into the Scottish capital is a significant milestone for Roomzzz as we look to grow our successful portfolio of luxurious aparthotels across the UK."

JLL acted on behalf of TH Real Estate, and Christie and Co acted for Roomzzz.
