About this venue
Nelson Mandela Place Apartments is a stunning converted A Grade property offering superior & classic studio apartments. Located in the city centre you have easy access to public transport with Queen St station just 5 minutes walk away & shops, bars & restaurants plentiful.
Nelson Mandela Place was originally St George’s Place. In 1981, whilst Mandela was still imprisoned on Robben Island under the South African apartheid regime, he was awarded the Freedom of the city of Glasgow. Glasgow City Council continued its support for the campaign to free Nelson Mandela by renaming the street in honour of the political prisoner in 1986, much to the annoyance of staff in the South African consulate there.
The Glassford Residence is an A-listed building which has been renovated and converted into 8 modern apartments and is ideally located for guests to enjoy everything that Merchant City and Glasgow has to offer.
The Merchant City has been built up in recent years as a residential, shopping and leisure area, mirroring Covent Garden in the West End of London. To this end, many new bars and restaurants have been established, complemented with the redevelopment and restoration of many Victorian buildings.
