Edinburgh International Business Gateway

Key Sectors: Commercial/office, Retail & leisure, Tourism and hospitality, Urban Residential


The Edinburgh International Business Gateway (EIBG) offers mixed-use opportunities on over 100 hectares of land in West Edinburgh, with scope for £700+ million of commercial and residential property development.

EIBG is a high profile development on a gateway site at the entrance to Edinburgh Airport, Scotland’s busiest airport. EIBG is at the heart of of Edinburgh’s strategic expansion to the west.

EIBG is a multi-phased development with the initial phase planned to include offices, hotels and residential along with ancillary restaurant, leisure and retail. The site benefits from a strategic and prominent position fronting the A8 and the entrance to the airport.

A tram stop at the site creates excellent links to both Edinburgh Airport and the city centre. The new £48 million Edinburgh Gateway station (which is on the main east coast line between Edinburgh and Aberdeen) is two stops away by tram and the site is well serviced by Scotland’s motorway and trunk road network.


The recently agreed City Region Deal allocates £20 million towards supporting infrastructure in this area and work is now underway on the strategy for delivery.
