Statement of Interest

This tenement contributes to the townscape, enclosing the N side of Argyll Square. The loss of the wallhead stack at the corner bay, the wallhead stack between bays 2 and 3 of the Argyll Square facade, and the apex stack and skews between Nos 9 and 10 Argyll Square is regrettable. The wallhead stack at the corner bay served to reinforce the existing relationship between this building and No 13 Argyll Square, framing the E entrance to the square.
