City Improvement Trust tenements at Trongate :: Shared Description

A finely detailed Category B Listed building LinkExternal link at the corner of Argyle Street and King Street in Flemish Baronial style. Dating from 1895, by architect A B MacDonald.

The City Improvement Trust was a body which was set up to improve the squalid living conditions that existed in many parts of Glasgow in the latter half of the nineteenth century. Visits to Paris by the trustees influenced the adoption of the traditional tenement house style (typical of Baron Haussman LinkExternal link ) to rehouse many thousands of Glaswegians.
