Statement of Interest

Dated 1900, this is a well-detailed tenement building situated on a prominent site, visible at entry into Aberdeen city centre from the Railway Station (see separate listing). The multi-pane glazing pattern to the upper sashes is unusual in the city centre and together with the canted corner bay it makes a significant contribution to the streetscape. The 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey Map indicates the presence of a Public House and the ground floor is occupied by one currently (2006).
