Hm, it appears like you're right. This site said it was not constructed as illustrated:
http://archiseek.com/2014/1904-wareh...on-st-glasgow/

And I was not able to find any similar looking buildings when searching for "warehouse, nelson street, glasgow", so I therefore thought the design had not been built. Guess I was wrong then.

thats very interesting, i suppose its down to the additional bays that were built on the south façade in place of the 18th c Tontine Hotel (the three storey arcaded building in the archiseek illustration) which, coincidently shall we say, suffered a fire within a few years of the initial warehouse proposal. nice find, thanks for sharing it
