Nelson Mandela Place Apartments
Nelson Mandela Place Apartments are the perfect base for shoppers, being a mere few footsteps away from Buchanan Street, the main shopping artery in the city centre, with high street brands and three shopping centres all on your doorstep.
The street name where the apartments are based also has a special story behind it. Nelson Mandela Place was originally St George’s Place, however whilst Mandela was still imprisoned on Robben Island under the South African apartheid regime in 1981, he was awarded the Freedom of the city of Glasgow. To mark the local Council’s continued support for the campaign to free Nelson Mandela, it renamed the street in honour of the political prisoner in 1986. The name change was all the more significant, as it was home to the South African Consulate.
