Developments at Ocean Terminal

The Ocean Terminal team have been looking at ways to make Ocean Terminal an even more enjoyable place to visit.

 

  • Ocean Dining – Ocean Terminal’s existing food court ‘The View’ is being expanded, refurbished and rebranded ‘Ocean Dining’. Additional mall seating areas are being created for existing restaurants and feature pendant lighting is being installed to enhance the setting. The old Management Suite is being converted to provide space for an exciting new restaurant to join the 16 catering outlets already in the centre.

 

  • Mall refurbishments – Refurbishments throughout the centre will reinvigorate the malls and help to ensure a vibrant and engaging experience for all those who use the centre. Centre branding will be brought up to date, and new finishes will be used to create both impact and drama.

 

  • Car park refurbishments – Refurbishment of the car park lobbies and pedestrian walkways will help to revitalise the areas, making them more customer friendly, and the new signage will make it easier for customers to find their way back to their car.

 

The developments currently in progress represent a £1 million investment by the new owners, Resolution Property, who bought Ocean Terminal from Forth Ports in 2011.

 

Subjit Jassy of Resolution Property said, ‘We are extremely positive about the future of Ocean Terminal, and with this investment we are demonstrating our commitment to the centre, to Leith and to Edinburgh. Retail’s woes have been widely reported, but it is clear to us that the mix of shopping, leisure, eating and drinking that we have at Ocean Terminal is the way forward.’

 

Dennis Jones, Centre Manager added, ‘There is no room for complacency in our business. We are committed to continuously improving the experience for customers. The programme of works will cause minimal inconvenience, but will bring huge benefits to our visitors.

 

The work will not affect customers making use of the shops, cinema and existing restaurants and cafes, but when complete will transform the ten year old centre.
