Amazon takes 4 acres at Queensferry One

Nov 4, 2019

Scarborough Muir Group has today announced that Amazon has agreed a new lease on four acres of land for use as a lorry parking facility at the Queensferry One development at Rosyth. Amazon is taking advantage of Queensferry One’s excellent location alongside the new Queensferry Crossing and M90 motorway.

The £250 million Queensferry One development covers 120 acres occupying an inspiring south-facing waterfront location with views of all three Forth bridges, including the new Queensferry Crossing which provides an average of approximately 75,000 traffic movements a day passing the site.

The development will integrate 800,000 sq ft of industrial, manufacturing and logistics warehouses; 50,000 sq ft for roadside type uses (20,000 sq ft of retail and a 120-bed hotel, all of which reflect the Local Development Plan (FIFEplan). Flexible opportunities exist from land sales to design and build on a lease or freehold basis.

Queensferry One is well connected to the main cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow in addition to providing easy access to the north via the M90 motorway, while Edinburgh International Airport is only 15 minutes away. Close-by Inverkeithing train station is on the main east coast line providing a fast service to and from London and Aberdeen. The site is also immediately adjacent to major facilities operated by Babcock and Forth Ports.

The locality has a highly skilled workforce with over 40 years’ experience in the Energy and Marine sectors.

Queensferry One is being jointly marketed by JLL and Ryden.

“Despite recent market turbulence as a result of Brexit, Queensferry One is experiencing good levels of enquiries which is testament to its exceptionally strong strategic location.

Attracting a premier distribution operation like Amazon to Queensferry One underlines its excellent location from a connectivity perspective, however the development is also ideal for industrial, manufacturing, energy, data and storage, financial, TMT, or waterside port sectors; it has it all.”

— William McAlister, Scarborough Muir Group

“This is the start of a new era for Queensferry One, the Amazon deal is the start of what we see as a very active period of new developments within Rosyth, and the Group is now considering speculative development and is in the final stages of progressing a major pre-let.”

— Ross Jubin, Scarborough International Properties
