On these street frontages, merchants houses with attached warehouses were built, to be later replaced by, or converted to warehousing as the merchant class migrated to areas further from the dock.

An early C19 warehouse which forms part of the most significant surviving group of buildings located close to the site of the city's first enclosed dock, and associated with the early phase of Liverpool's development as a seaport of international significance. Distinctive architectural form and prominent siting gives the building group great townscape significance within the historic port landscape of which it forms part.
