No.1 Sime Place is situated in a prominent town centre position.
Galashiels has a population of approximately 14,000 and is generally considered to be the main administrative, retail and social centre for the region, effectively serving a population of in excess of 110,000.
In recent years Galashiels has been subject to considerable investment. Developments have included the Gala Water Retail Park, two new supermarkets to the east of the town centre and significant transport infrastructure works.
These infrastructure works have included the Galashiels inner relief road and the Borders Railway link which has re-established passenger services between Edinburgh Waverley and the Central Borders. The journey time from Galashiels to Edinburgh City Centre is approximately fifty five minutes, with departures every thirty minutes. On weekdays, the first train departs from Edinburgh at 05.45, last at 23.55.
The town features a wide range of high street and out of town retailing, restaurants, cafés and local amenities. There is a significant student population as home to the Heriot Watt University School of Textiles and Design as well as having a campus of Borders College and close training links between Borders General Hospital and a number of Edinburgh Universities.
