When it first opened this retail mall was featured everywhere as it was a novel concept for Scotland and was seen as being both more upmarket than other emerging shopping malls and more integral to the city’s structure.

A replica of Foucault’s Pendulum is hung in the building atrium and the symmetrical sweeping staircases use ornate Art Nouveau-influenced balustrading. Some of the spaces are rather dark and unwelcoming such as under the stairs and in side aisles.

The Edinburgh Architectural Association Centenary Medal (1989) was given to the Hugh Martin Partnership for this Glaswegian Speciality Shopping Centre. The Hugh Martin Partnership also won the RIBA Scottish Regional Award for Architecture (1988) and a Civic Trust Award (1989). The original fabric has been protected as a category B listed building since 1970.
The writer Bill Bryson referred to Princes Square as “one of the most intelligent pieces of urban renewal”.
