The original building on this site dated from 1830 and was part of the Blythswood New Town. It was later re-modelled by Alexander Thomson and demolished in 2004 after several years of being left vacant.

The building line of West Regent Street is set back behind original Thomson ironwork railings and consistent with the rest of the terrace. The ground floor foyer space is accessed directly without the traditional short flight of steps from West Regent Street. Car parking to the basement is achieved through the use of mechanical stackers, accessed from West Regent Lane.

The facades will be traditionally built stone as a ‘shell’ enclosure addressing the main street elevations including the east elevation.
