St. Enoch Centre history
St. Enoch Square was originally opened in 1783 as a grazing area for sheep and since then it has seen some of Glasgow’s finest landmarks come and go. St. Enoch Railway Station first opened its doors in 1876 and the St. Enoch Hotel followed in 1879. The St. Enoch Hotel was closed in 1974 and the site was used as a car park until 1985 when initial work started on St. Enoch Centre, the first shopping centre of its kind in Scotland. Since opening on May 25, 1989, St. Enoch Centre has consistently led the way for shopping centres in Scotland, inspiring the growth of Glasgow’s vibrant retail sector. In 2021, St. Enoch will launch over 140,000 sq ft of exciting new retail and leisure as part of a £40 million development of the east end of the shopping centre.
