Ogilvie undertook the design and construction of Glasgow Cross, which provides residential and commercial space, in five tower blocks to accommodate the client's aspirations. Designed by architects Gholami Baines, the Merchant Building draws upon the inspirational architecture from nearby buildings including the Mercat Building, the Bell Street Warehouses and the iconic Tolbooth.
The development comprises of 140, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, basement carparking, internal landscaped courtyard overlooking the Gallowgate, with 360 degree views of the Glasgow skyline. The commercial units on the ground floor of the three contemporary landmark buildings assist in the regeneration of this prominent corner of Glasgow. This development builds on the outstanding success of the Merchant City as a centre of urban living and commerce and has assisted in extending the city centre east to connect with the Homes for the Future development at Glasgow Green.
