Merchant City (Glasgow, UK) stereotypes, buildings

I get the sense the Merchant City is now considered a trendy area in Glasgow today (as opposed to, say, 20 years ago). Would you be considered a bit bourgeois/trying too hard to be cool for deciding to move there in the past five years? Also, what buildings are instantly recognizable as being in the Merchant City, but don't have any obvious advertising on? Would the Italian Center work? (I don't want to use the signs that says MERCHANT CITY.) I'm looking for buildings that are associated with the Merchant City specifically, rather than Glasgow in general.
