Mount Stuart Square, a designated conservation area since 1980, is home to something like 60 listed buildings. Some of these listed buildings are considered landmark buildings; some are not.
One of the landmark buildings is Baltic House. Built in 1915, Baltic House faces the main entrance of the Coal Exchange. I’ve been unable to find much online about its history, but it is reasonable to assume that it had some connection to the coal trade through the Bute Docks of the day. Today, it appears to be a multi-tenant office block.
