10 Exchange Street is a good example of Aberdeen's classical architecture and contributes positively to the streetscape. Round-arched openings, aprons and blocking courses are all features of 19th century Aberdeen and used to enliven the otherwise simple character of the buildings.
Exchange Street and the neighbouring streets were formed in the mid nineteenth century as part of the development of this part of the city and as part of a project to clear what was felt to be unhealthy and uninhabitable houses.
Currently commercial premises (2006).
Category changed from B to C(S), 2007.
