A THRIVING COMMERCIAL LOCATION
The Shore and its surrounding area has a superb array of amenities, beyond Commercial Quay itself, including numerous well-established restaurants, cafes and bars, plus a Malmaison Hotel round the corner. So you can entertain visitors and give your guests the best hospitality without having to trek more than a few minutes from the office.
Ocean Terminal is a large retail and leisure complex less than five minutes walk from Commercial Quay. Here you’ll find the full range of big retailers, plus a VUE Cinema and a PURE Gym. One of Scotland’s key tourist attractions, The Royal Yacht Britannia, which draws over 300,000 visitors a year, is permanently moored at Ocean Terminal.
There’s an excellent bus link into the City Centre, with a stop just in front of Commercial Quay. We’re a 22-minute Uber ride from the airport and ten minutes to Waverley Station for high speed trains to London or Glasgow. There are also good cycle routes and accessible walkways, both within Leith and the wider Edinburgh area. From Spring 2023, an extension to the tram line through Leith and out to Newhaven will add eight new stops and 4.69 kilometres/2.91 miles of track in both directions.
Leith’s reputation as a digital and media hub has created a strong buzz around the area and attracted organisations from both the private and public sectors to set up here. Today we’re home to the Scottish Wildlife Trust, The Leith Agency, Mastercard, NHS Central Legal Office, Energy Savings Trust, and Ipsos Mori. The Scottish Government’s 377,000 sq ft headquarters is directly opposite Commercial Quay.
