Rosyth gets bridge boost for Queensferry One
Queensferry Crossing is expected to boost Fife economy
A new masterplan for Rosyth waterfront has been unveiled, coinciding with the opening of the £1.35 billion Queensferry Crossing.
The £250 million Queensferry One development spans 120 acres and lies adjacent to the Queensferry Crossing, now the UK’s tallest bridge.
It will integrate 450,000 sq ft of new offices; 800,000 sq ft of industrial, manufacturing and logistics warehouses; 60,000 sq ft for roadside type uses (such as a service station and food outlets) and a 120 bed budget hotel.
William McAlister, property director of Scarborough Muir Group, which is behind the development, said: “The opening of the Queensferry Crossing means that Fife is truly open for business as connectivity issues are addressed.”
It is estimated that 8,000 could be employed when the site is fully developed.
Land sales for two plots within Queensferry One, extending to five acres, are currently near legal completion. Two 10,000 sq ft units are also expected to be built speculatively.
Queensferry One is being jointly marketed by JLL and Ryden.
