Edinburgh

Offering global insight, supporting local results

Located in central Edinburgh, Cushman & Wakefield’s Edinburgh office helps our clients respond to the growing real estate opportunities within the city and throughout eastern Scotland.

A truly international city, Edinburgh welcomes millions of business and tourist visitors from across the world every year. Its castle, classical architecture and historic streetscape provide the backdrop for a vibrant and modern commercial city with a population of around 500,000 people and a catchment of 1.2 million. Regularly voted one of the best places to live in the world, Edinburgh’s attractions drive a strong residential market with a fast-growing rental sector including BTR, student accommodation, and senior living.

Innovation and culture

Edinburgh’s commercial core is financial and business services. As the largest financial services hub in the UK outside London, it is home to over 30 banks, a range of niche asset managers, and major institutions including RBS, ASI, Aegon, HSBC, and Royal London. 56% of the workforce is educated to degree level or higher, and the city’s graduates and universities have created the bedrock of an exciting tech hub. Specialising in informatics, fintech, cleantech, and biotech, it has attracted companies such as Skyscanner, Rockstar, Cirrus Logic, Amazon and Codebase, who operate the largest innovation hub outside London.

Edinburgh’s status as a world-leading city is also exemplified by the Edinburgh International Festival and Festival Fringe, one of the largest arts festival in the world. Alongside the city’s famous Hogmanay celebrations, the Festival is the mainstay of a year-round tourist industry supporting an eclectic array of retail and leisure – and a hotels sector with the highest occupancy rates in the UK outside London.
