This is a large, impressive building with street elevations on three sides. Built in the then fashionable Scots Baronial style, the corner turrets and crow-stepped gables are a distinctive addition to the streetscape, and contrast with the surrounding classical style buildings.
Exchange Street and the surrounding area was redeveloped in the mid to late 19th century as a mixed use area with housing, commercial buildings and industrial units.
Previous List Description suggests that this was in use as a Masonic Hall in 1900.
