Just to the east of St Vincent Street Church by Alexander Thomson, which is massed to try and show some respect to it.

There are 131 apartments in this 17 storey building located on the west edge of the financial sector in the city centre

Built in 1971 as Heron House, a typical concrete high rise office block of the period. Notable in its early days as housing the first branch of Habitat outside of London – Terence Conran chose to eschew the city centre and set up shop here in Anderston, a part of the city which was undergoing massive renewal at the time. By the time Brutalist buildings symbolised everything that was wrong with 1960s urban planning, the largest tenant – British Telecom – had moved out and the building was facing demolition. Almost symbolically, Habitat too had had enough and also moved out in favour of the Buchanan Galleries in 1999.
