In the early 1980s the Merchant City was transforming itself from warehousing and light industry into a city-centre residential village. This hugely ambitious development, right at its heart, occupies an entire city block between Brunswick Street and Candleriggs. A group of warehouses was restored as housing and a new, drum-towered, brick building added at the south-west corner. Two of the buildings are by the historian and architect R.W. Billings, the one on Ingram Street includes Dutch gables, turrets, oriel windows and string courses. Subsequent infill developments, also by Elder & Cannon, include a shiny blue-brick tenement and an elegant Arthouse hotel.
