The area now known as 'Merchant City' was developed from the 1750s onwards. Residences and warehouses of the wealthy merchant "tobacco lords" (who prospered in shipping and, amongst other things, tobacco, sugar and tea) were built in the area. The district west of the High Street formed the historic backbone of the city, the development of what is now known as with wide, straight streets, vistas, and squares, marked the beginning of a process of aspirational residential movement westwards that would continue throughout the 19th century and into the 20th with the development of Blythswood Hill, Hillhead and the West End of Glasgow.
As Glasgow expanded in the 19th century to become the second city of the United Kingdom and its British Empire, the area became a working district of warehouses and home to the city's central fruit, vegetable and cheese markets.
The Merchant City has been promoted and built up in recent years as a residential, shopping and leisure area, mirroring Covent Garden in the West End of London. To this end many new bars and restaurants have been established. This has been complemented with the building of prestigious new housing developments, often by restoring Victorian buildings. An example being the GPO Building development.
Another important element of the area's transformation is high-end shopping, anchored by the Italian Centre, home to, amongst others, Versace Collections (the UK's first Versace store) and Emporio Armani. The Italian Centre was designed by Page\Park Architects who are fond of including art in their architecture. Here the art is integral to the façades, but also features in the courtyard including a sculpture, 'Thinking of Bella' (1994) by Shona Kinloch. Recent shopping developments include Bang and Olufsen, Bose, Escada, Ralph Lauren, Mulberry and underwear and lingerie Agent Provocateur stores. The annual Merchant City Festival takes place every Summer attracting tens of thousands to the area with its multi-arts programme. It's only a short walk from Merchant City to the thriving city centre.
The Merchant City allows easy access to almost everywhere in the city. Both major railway stations - Queen St and Glasgow Central are within a ten minute walk, access to the M8 Motorway is five minutes drive, taking you to Glasgow airport in twenty minutes. The City Tour bus stops just across the street (in Bell Street) every twenty minutes, you can buy a multi day pass that allows you to tour around most of the key areas in Glasgow. The Subway is a ten minute walk which takes you to the West End of Glasgow in minutes. Walking from the apartment to the main shopping areas of Argylle Street, Buchanan street etc are less than ten minutes. Glasgow Black Taxi cabs are excellent, efficient and economical (phone number hidden)
