Although there are scatterings of Thomson’s flagship décor, including the fanned stone ornaments adorning the walls and the patterned chimneys, many critics consider it to be somewhat lacking in the usual quality associated with Thomson. However, while it could be judged to be plain, compared to his other tenements, the building’s most striking feature is the immense curvature of the west wall. It was granted Catergory B listed status by Historic Scotland in 1970.
